But the President has assured the nation that the minister is now in a stable condition after contracting the virus.

He also confirmed that the Mayor of Sekondi-Takoradi who died on Friday was killed by the virus.

Ghana has registered 11,964 positive cases of the coronavirus, one of the highest in the region, but has also conducted one of the highest tests on the continent at 254,311, and one of the lowest deaths from the virus.

With 54 deaths reported so far in Ghana, the ratio of deaths to positive cases is 0.4%, compared with a global average of 5.5% and an African average of 2.6%, Akufo-Addo said.
