The Minister of Education, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, is on self-isolation at the University of Ghana Medical Center (UGMC) in Accra after being suspected of contracting coronavirus.

This follows a voluntary test he undertook of Covid-19 at the same centre on Monday evening after he returned from his constituency.

Confirming the development on Onua TV’s Covid-19 NKOMO programme hosted by Bright Kwasi Asempa and Adwoa Konadu-Yiadom on Wednesday, the Deputy Public Relations Officer for the Ministry of Education, Kwasi Obeng-Fosu, explained that the Minister returned from his constituency on Monday after his acclamation as the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Parliamentary Candidate for Manhyia South Constituency in the December 7 elections.

The PRO explained that after tests, NAPO, as he is popularly called, decided to self-isolate even though the result of the test is yet to come out.

“He went for voluntary testing and as a medical doctor; he did not want to mingle so he decided to self isolate.”

Mr. Obeng-Fosu said it was a good thing for the Minister to self-isolate after a Covid-19 test because no one knows the result of the test.

He urged the public to be calm over the issue because the Minister himself has promised to make his test public.
