Ghana’s High Commissioner to the United Kingdom and Ireland, Papa Owusu Ankomah has recovered after being infected with the novel Coronavirus.
Making the announcement today, Tuesday, May 12, 2020, Mr Ankomah described his recovery as a blessing from the “horrific effects” of COVID-19.
Papa Owusu Ankomah was in April 2020 diagnosed with the virus and was said to be in “stable condition” despite reports that he was receiving treatment at the intensive care unit at a hospital.
But a statement from the diplomat said he is now free from the virus.
“I am reaching out to you today as the world fights a significant battle against the Coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19). As most of you are aware, I tested positive for COVID-19 and was admitted to the Royal Free Hospital, London, in April 2020. I count myself blessed to be counted among the living today based on my recovery from the horrific effects of the virus.”
Papa Owusu Ankomah expressed appreciation to the government and President Nana Akufo-Addo for what he said was the ‘compassion’ shown towards him during the trying moments.
He also extended similar appreciation to well-meaning Ghanaians who through thick and thin expressed concerns and poured out their well-wishes to him.
