Gospel musician, Celestine Donkor, and her husband, Kofi Donkor have been reported to have tested positive for the Coronavirus in December 2020.
In a Facebook post sighted by GhanaWeb, Mr Donkor revealed that they have recovered from the virus following treatment but he suffered from erectile dysfunction, a side effect that some men who contracted the virus have experienced.
Despite public awareness on the impact of COVID-19, a section of the public aver that the virus is not real and have therefore attached little or no importance to safety protocols.
“COVID IS REAL! On 19th December 2020, my wife and I tested positive for COVID. My recovery was faster than expected. Fast forward, about 10days after my recovery I was struggling with appetite and worst of all I had no erection. Please mask-up! #maskup,” he wrote in a Facebook post sighted by GhanaWeb on February 8, 2021.

A total of 65, 149 persons have recovered from the deadly virus in Ghana.
