Frederick Drah, a patient who has contracted the virus has said Ghanaians should fear that anyone who gets infected with coronavirus disease will die.
He stressed that the misinformation about the virus among Ghanaians should be eradicated.
Speaking in an interview with CitiTV, Frederick Drah said; “Currently, I am not afraid but in the initial stages, the way the information about the virus had gone around made it seem that when you’re tested positive, the following day, you’re going to die, but not knowing, when I came here to this treatment centre as the first to be tested positive, it was a different situation”
“So, my people out there should know that testing positive for COVID-19, despite it being a deadly virus, does not mean that you will die, nobody just dies like that,” he added.
“I was picked up to the National Treatment Centre here at the Ga East Municipal Hospital and since I’ve been here, the nurses, doctors and healthcare workers have taken very good care of me. People have been coming in here and they’ve been tested, when nothing is found in them, they’re asked to go home,” he explained.
“As I am standing here, with the help of the doctors and nurses and the treatment they give us here, I am stronger than before,” Drah said.
