‘I’m unwell’ – Dan Botwe confirms admission at John Mahama’s UGMC over coronavirus

Minister of Regional Integration, Dan Botwe, has been admitted at the University of Ghana Medical Centre (UGMC), a statement from his office said on Wednesday.

The MP for Okere in the Eastern Region said in a statement that, he is on admission “upon feeling unwell earlier this week”.

Among the several tests he has done is a coronavirus test of which the result is yet to come in.

Mr. Botwe has pledged to inform the general public of his coronavirus test results when he receives it.

“I will endeavour to inform the general public about my results when I am informed of it.”

This news comes a few hours after the Education Minister, Matthew Opoku Prempeh, released a statement sharing similar information.

He has been detained at the same isolation centre over fears of COVID-19 infection and is also awaiting his COVID-19 test results after reporting himself to the facility when he felt unwell.

Early this month, Ghana’s Health Minister, Kwaku Agyemang Manu tested positive for Covid-19 and is said to be receiving treatment at home.
