COVID-19 Ghana: Ursula Owusu’s Husband Tested Negative

Ursula Owusu’s Husband Samuel Owusu Ekuful Has Tested Negative For The Coronavirus

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’s 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.
