Ghana’s deputy trade and industry minister, Carlos Ahenkorah, who is also a Member of Parliament (MP), has been forced to resign for breaking coronavirus self-isolation restrictions after testing positive for Covid-19.
He had visited a voter registration centre in his constituency in the city of Tema before completing his period of isolation but claiming
he adhered to social-distancing rules and that he was asymptomatic.
Calls for him to be prosecuted for breaching safety guidelines and endangering the lives of people trail him.
The nation of about 31 million people has recorded about 19,388 cases of coronavirus and 117 fatalities as the world sits at about 11,191, 676 cases with 529,127 deaths at Saturday June 4.
Like many other nations of the world, the West African nation has experienced a rise in cases following the easing of some restrictions last month.
