Be mindful about the kind of information you consume and share during this coronavirus pandemic that has now been confirmed in the country.
Yesterday, the Ministry of Health confirmed that two cases of the novel coronavirus called COVID-19 have been confirmed in Ghana.
Today, a fake news story is going viral claiming that the CEO of Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, Dr Daniel Asare has said that those two particular cases have now tested negative.
Kindly disregard that as a fake news story.
The viral video interview with Dr Asare was recorded a month ago about some two other suspected cases.
This fake news story has now been debunked by the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital as well.
In a statement on Facebook, the hospital said: “the said video is fake, false and unrelated to the two confirmed cases announced by the Minister of Health.”
“The video was recorded over a month ago when the Hospital had two suspected cases whose results proved negative,” the statement added.
The two patients Dr Asare were referring to in that video were discharged the next day.
“The public is advised to desist from circulating fake news to cause fear and panic,” the hospital added.
Don’t share fake news…
Make sure you only share information from trusted websites.
Unfortunately, we do have two confirmed COVID-19 cases in Ghana.
