Communications Minister, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, says her husband, Sam Ekufful, has tested negative for the novel Coronavirus.

In a Facebook post cited by GhanaWeb, the Ablekuma West MP wrote, “Suspected Covid-19 specimen for SAM EKUFFUL submitted on 21/03/2020 tested NEGATIVE for SARS-COV-2 virus.”

Mr Sam Ekufful went into self-isolation last week after he arrived from the UK.

“We leave his food at the door. If we want to talk to him, we stand at a safe distance away and talk to him, we wave him, he’s okay,” Ursula told the media.

Mrs Owusu-Ekuful who was very nervous about her husband status stated that, “It is necessary if we want the COVID-19 pandemic to end. He can’t chat with the kids or sit in the living room you can’t sit in our living room. It is like a self-imposed house arrest.”

She, however, expressed her gratitude to all friends, family and well-wishers who showed concern for her family.
