Some news portals are alleging that one of the two persons who have been diagnosed with the coronavirus disease in Ghana recently met with the president of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
This followed claims that the identity of the said Norwegian man has been revealed and that he is a diplomat stationed in Ghana.
The independentghana.com today [March 13, 2020] carried a ghsplash.com-sourced story in which it staked the claim that the said diplomat left the shores of Ghana for Norway to help prepare the way for president Akufo-Addo’s recent visit to that country.
The man, whose name has been given as Gunnar Andras Holm, a senior official of the Norwegian Embassy in Ghana, allegedly arrived back in Ghana last week after that visit by president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
However, details of when, how and where the alleged meeting between Mr Holm and president Akufo-Addo took place are not known at this point. It is also not known if there was any physical interaction such as a handshake or a hug between Mr Gunnar Andras Holm and president Akufo-Addo.
It will be recalled that while the world battled the dreaded coronavirus disease, president Akufo-Addo announced a five-nation tour to some European countries, including Norway. The other countries the president visited are Scotland, Belgium, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
Whilst the president was on those visits, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Kumbungu, Hon Ras Mubarak called for the president to be quarantined on his arrival back in Ghana. But shortly after president Akufo-Addo’s return home, he was seen in public announcing measures to prevent the deadly disease from getting to Ghana.
