“I decided to see how some of the centres were just operating. So, I stepped out into town a bit. It didn’t mean I couldn’t go out. My test results had shown I was positive a week ago and after one week, my doctors said I could step out,” he told Asempa FM.

“They [doctors] said I could go out, except that I needed to wear my mask and observe social distancing,” the lawmaker added.

In a short statement on Thursday, 2 July 2020, Mr. Ahenkorah said: “My attention has been drawn to messages circulating on social media to the effect that I am in ICU after testing positive for COVID-19 sending worrying signals and misinformation to my well-wishers and party faithful”.

“I must categorically state that I am not in ICU”, Mr. Ahenkorah noted, adding: “Neither am I in Korle Bu at the moment”.

“I was admitted for an overnight review on my COVID status at the isolation center in Korle Bu yesterday around 5 pm and discharged at 11 am this morning”.

“I have not, in any way, been taken ill or suffer any serious break down to send me into ICU. I ask all and sundry to disregard this hollow speculation and confirm I’m as fit as I used to be. Thank you!”
