There was a massive jubilation at Damongo in the West Gonja Municipality of the Savannah region when nurses at the Damongo Government Hospital released one Adam Alhassan who was isolated and quarantined for almost 48 hours for showing symptoms suspected to be coronovirus.
Alhassan Adam, 35, returned to Ghana from Italy on February 28 only to show signs of fever and cough in two weeks, symptoms many residents including his family suspected to be COVID – 19
He was immediately isolated on arrival at the Damango Government Hospital after been convinced to subject himself to a test by some opinion leaders and the West Gonja Municipal Chief Executive, Saeed Muazu.
He had initially declined but later gave in.
But after blood samples of Adam Alhassan were taken to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi for a test, the result proved negative for COVID-19.
“He tested negative and to us in Damongo, this is a relief because many of us, you know he had refused to go to the hospital and we even tried bringing in the Police but they said they were scared of infection”, the Municipal Chief Executive Saeed Muazu had said.
His release witnessed drumming and dancing on the principal streets of Damango, the Savannah regional capital.
Adam Alhassan has since reunited with him family.
