A man who tested positive for Covid-19 – the respiratory disease caused by the coronavirus – in the Upper West Region, is at large.

The 46-year-old Nigerian, Simon Okafor Chukudi, tested positive for coronavirus on Monday but has since disappeared from his residence at Wapaani, a suburb of the regional capital, Wa after health authorities informed him about his status.

Upper West Regional Director of the Ghana Health Service, Dr Osei Kufuor Afreh, who confirmed the incident to JoyNews’ Rafiq Salam said the Nigerian is one of the region’s imported Covid-19 cases.

“Five out of the new cases were people who came from abroad, including one Nigerian and one person from the Western region.

“But unfortunately for us, one of our confirmed cases cannot be traced. Having given him feedback on his test results, it has been very difficult to reach him,” Dr Afreh added.

He explained that health professionals had planned to transport Chukudi to the regional isolation centre but have tried to no avail to get in touch with him.

“For almost 48 hours now, it has been difficult to reach him,” he stated.

Regional Police Commander, DCOP Francis Aboagye Nyarko, said a search party has already been dispatched to hunt for the Nigerian.

He is hopeful that Chukudi will be found in the shortest possible time.

Upper West is one of the 10 regions affected by Covid-19 with seven cases.
