TV broadcaster Gifty Anti has tested negative for COVID-19.She is among 1,000 persons who have been compulsorily quarantined and being tested after entering the country from coronavirus-hit countries.
Oheneyere, as she is referred to, in a statement, said she lost five kilos in five minutes while waiting to hear the test results.
“Between ‘hello I am Dr…’ to the end of the 5-minute conversation, I lost 5 kilos!! Sharp. Chai!!,” she stated.
The award-winning broadcast journalist said she is writing a book on her quarantine experience and urged Ghanaians to stay safe while obeying the protocols outlined to prevent the spread of the virus.
Ghana has recorded sixty-eight COVID-19 cases with two deaths.
Meanwhile, the Ghana Medical Association (GMA) has called on the government to lock down the country with immediate effect to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
The GMA says only essential services such as food, water and medicine businesses should be allowed to operate.
“The lockdown, though not a comfortable decision for leadership and citizens alike is a proven option backed by science and along with the other measures will ultimately be in our best interest.
“We call on all Ghanaians to support such a move in the national interest to save our nation from the devastating effects of this pandemic,” the GMA said in a press statement released Wednesday.
