Ghana FA Spokesperson, Henry Asante Twum test positive for covid-19

Communications Director for the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Henry Asante Twum has announced that he has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) and is undergoing mandatory quarantine.

This comes after Black Stars management committee member Jones Abu Alhassan and six Players also tested positive at their training camp in Antalya, Turkey, and was detained to undergo mandatory quarantine.

Meanwhile, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) says the team's contingent adhered to COVID-19 protocols before, during and after their stay in Turkey, with a minimum of three tests conducted on players, technical and management team members during the training camp.

In a statement on Sunday, the FA said no single positive test was recorded before the teams' first two games with Mali and Qatar, however one team official tested positive for the virus and isolated from the group a day before the team's departure from Turkey.

"The GFA ensured all FIFA COVID-19 protocols were strictly adhered to throughout the national team’s engagement and it is quite a concern that some members of the team have subsequently tested positive for the virus.

"The GFA will continue to monitor the situation and will provide all necessary support to the affected players while wishing them a speedy recovery," the statement said.
