I nearly died from coronavirus – Adaklu MP

The Member of Parliament for Adaklu in the Volta Region, Governs Kwame Agbodza, has revealed that he almost died from coronavirus.

According to him, he tested positive for the virus a week after the January 6, 2021 melee in the chamber of Parliament and had to fight the virus for close to a month.

The Legislator in an interview with the media on the sidelines of the commissioning of a health facility in his constituency disclosed that he almost became paralyzed for two weeks which was later diagnosed as post-COVID complications.

“I suspect I got infected when we did the inauguration in Parliament, you saw how chaotic the situation was. After a period of time, I got cured or became COVID negative and then I felt like using the washroom but when I got out of my bed I couldn’t stand on my leg. Apparently, I’d had post covid syndrome, my legs were numb and I couldn’t use them. So for about two weeks anything I needed to do, somebody needed to carry me.”

Meanwhile, 18 more persons have died from coronavirus bringing Ghana’s death toll to 637.
