Chief Executive Officer of the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) , Dr.Lydia Dsane-Selby has tested positive for the deadly corona virus.
She confirmed the report in an interview with Accra based Asaase Radio today.
Dr.Lydia said the test was carried on her some few days ago and the report came out positive. She has since gone under self-quarantine.
“I live with my mother and luckily she tested negative together with the house staff, so it’s just me in the house who is positive. So i immediately self-quarantined and contacted doctors at korle-Bu and others who have put me on a treatment regime”. She said.
When asked if any contact tracing has been made, Dr.Lydia responded that she contacted all those she came into contact with over the past few days and they’ve been tested, and all the results came out negative.
The NHIA Boss has become the third high profile official after Mr.Kweku Manu(Minister of Health) and Hon.Kobina Kurentsir(Former Mayor of Sekondi takoradi) to test positive for the deadly corona virus.
