Two persons who fled health authorities after contracting the novel coronavirus have been found.

This was disclosed by the Director-General of the Ghana Health Service (GHS), Dr Patrick Aboagye, on Tuesday.

The duo, whose cases were recorded at Tamale and Old Fadama a suburb of Accra respectively, took their heels after their results came back positive.

The commercial head porter in the Accra incident was part of two people in the area who eluded contact tracers after her test results came in on Monday, April 6, 2020. One of them was found with the assistance of the Chief Executive Officer of Accra Metropolitan Assembly on April 9 while the status of the former was made known today ay by the GHS.

The Tamale incident involved a Guinean lady in her 20s, who scaled the wall at the back of the hotel where she and nine others were being held in mandatory quarantine back in March.

But speaking at a press briefing at the Information Ministry, Dr Aboagye explained that “the Fadama case I am aware, they’ve been found and those in Tamale have also being found.

“They are all being taken care of,” he added.
