Member of Parliament(MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong has finally revealed the chilly experience he had with COVID-19 after he tested positive for the virus indicating he nearly died.
The maverick lawmaker has for close to three weeks been out of the public domain with many asking for his whereabouts since he put his crusade against “Fake Pastors” on hold.
But the businessman has in an interview with Adom TV monitored by MyNewsGh.com disclosed that he was away from the public’s eye because he had contracted the deadly COVID-19.
He said he almost died from the disease but God being so good, he was saved with the help of some experienced medical doctors.
The Assin Central Member of Parliament unlike other high profile personalities who could not tell how they contracted the diesease said he contracted it when he celebrated his sixteeth birthday with some group of friends.
He said some had tested positive and therefore gave it to him because he was exposed to the first group of persons to have contracted the virus
During this period he revealed that he almost lost his life if not for timely medical intervention and therefore was not shy to talk about his experience with the disease.
“It was after my 60th birthday party which I resisted so much and it exposed me to people who had already tested positive.
“I dined with them and even for some people, they did not even have their nose masks on while others had theirs down the chin.”
“For over two weeks I was in quarantine; my nose was blocked and my bed was as if water had been poured on it coupled with a fever and within five days, I had lost weight drastically,” he recounted.
I have recovered now and not shy to talk about it because I am a testimony but the disease is so real and we don’t have to joke with it,” Mr. Agyapong urged.
