Social media users have reacted with doubt to the Health Minister Kwaku Agyeman Manu’s claim that he has not contracted the novel coronavirus disease, but is taking some rest at the University of Ghana Medical Centre(UGMC) while receiving medication for his diabetes.

Earlier on Saturday June 14, 2020 reports said that the Minister had been hospitalised at the UGMC and was responding to treatment for COVID-19 after testing positive.

But Broadcast  journalist with Despite Media  Afia Pokuaa contradicted the reports, saying that Mr Agyeman Manu had told her that he had not tested positive for the novel coronavirus disease and was merely resting while taking his diabetes medication.

However many on social media have cast doubt on the minister’s COVID-19 denial:

“UG Medical Centre isn’t a branch of Golden  Tulip, neither is it a Spa. You can’t be taking rest there. It’s a COVID Treatment Centre,” write Ebenezer Afanyi Dadzie on Facebook.

“Who rests in a Hospital?” Abdul Mumin Mohammed wondered.

The government has designated the UGMC for the treatment of COVID-19 patients who are VIPs such as Ministers, ambassadors and other high ranking officials.
