I Have Inflammation Of The Liver-Ken Ofori Attah
Ghana’s finance minister, Ken Ofori Attah has revealed that he has inflamed liver which was realised just after he recovered from covid.
“I got COVID-19 somewhere in November and then got out of a hospital emergency, maybe the 10th of December and I came home, things were pretty good, i mean the COVID was gone,” Mr Ofori-Atta said in an interview on Metro TV’s Good Evening Ghana on Thursday, November 19, 2021.
“Then I began to feel jaundiced, feeling quite unwell. I eventually got a diagnosis that the liver was inflamed and required some work to determine what was really happening.
“That took some time to begin to find the probable cure, which involved steroids and all of that. So, I went back for review in August and the inflammation was pretty much gone. They are now titrating to see how to bring the steroid down, so I can get back to normal life.”
He gave the assurance that it has not affected his role as a minister of finance.
