The CEO of Ghana’s National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) Dr. Lydia Dsane-Selby has tested positive for COVID-19.

The Ghana Health Service (GHS) has launched a massive contact tracing in her case to track down all those she came into contact with over the past few weeks.

“I live with my mother and luckily she tested negative together with the house staff, so it’s just me in the house who is positive. So I immediately self-quarantined and contacted doctors at Korle-Bu and others who have put me on a treatment regime.

“I have contacted all those I came into contact with over the last few days and they’ve been for testing, and as far as I’m aware, they’re negative,” she told Asaase Radio.

“I’m fine. If feels like a bad bout of malaria. I just felt tired, quite a lot of body pains, muscle ache, headaches at the beginning but not anymore,” she said.

Meanwhile, the health minister Mr. Kwaku Agyeman-Manu has been discharged from the University of Ghana Medical Centre after contracting the coronavirus.

According to information minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, the minister will now continue his recovery at home.
