Information Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has wished Dr Lydia Dsane-Selby, the Chief Executive Officer of the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA), who is recuperating from Covid-19 a speedy recovery.
In a tweet, Mr Oppong Nkrumah said Dr Dsane-Selby was a passionate and hardworking person who was committed to the national cause.
He wrote: “I have known Dr Dsane-Selby since my days as a media practitioner.
” She is a passionate and hardworking person who was supportive in the COVID–19 response programme.
“I wish her and many others who are positive a speedy recovery from Covid-19”.
Dr Dsane-Selby announced her COVID–19 status in a media interview on Monday, June 15, saying that she was experiencing tiredness, bodily pains and headaches.
Consequently, she contacted a colleague at the Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research who came with a team to her house to take her samples for a test.
The test result turned out positive, therefore, she went into self- isolation to prevent her from exposing others to the virus.
Dr Dsane-Selby also contacted those she had come into contact with to go for voluntary testing.
She has become the fourth known government official to have tested positive for COVID-19, after Papa Owusu- Ankomah, Ghana’s High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, Health Minister Kwaku Agyeman-Manu, and Mr Anthony K.K Sam, the Mayor of Sekondi-Takoradi, who succumbed to the disease on Friday, June 12.
