Dr Dacosta Aboagye, Chairman of the Risk Communication and Social Mobilisation Committee for Ghana's COVID-19 Response team, has advised critics who have accused the Health Minister of deceit to rather pray for him to recover speedily.
The Health Minister Mr Kwaku Agyeman Manu courted controversy when news broke that he had been infected with COVID-19, which he reportedly denied.
The President in his 11th update to the nation, however, confirmed the report and wished him speedy recovery.
The Health Minister according to critics should have known better than to play hide and seek with his status.
Dr Dacosta Aboagye in an interview with the Ghana News Agency said Ghanaians should pray for him to recover quickly, instead of faulting him of deceit.
COVID-19, he said, was no respecter of persons.
Ghana's total confirmed cases of COVID-19 are 12,929, with 4,468 recoveries and 66 deaths.
