Chief Justice, His Lordship Justice Kwasi Anin Yeboah, has on the advice of his doctors gone into a two-week self-isolation.
A circular dated 7th July, 2020 signed and issued by the Judiciary Secretary, Ms Cynthia Pamela Addo, read, “Respectively, His Lordship the Chief Justice has from 6th July 2020, on the advice of his doctors, embarked on a fourteen (14) day self-isolation in compliance with COVID-19 protocols”.
The circular added that the Chief Justice would be working from his official residence during the period.
The circular, however, did not state whether or not the Chief Justice has tested positive to coronavirus.
This announcement comes few days after President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo begun a fourteen-day self-isolation period after coming into contact with a COVID-19 infected person in his office.
Ghana’s current confirmed COVID-19 case count stands at 21,968 with 17,156 recoveries/discharges and 129 deaths.
