The Member of Parliament has confirmed that he contracted the virus after his 60th birthday on 16 June 2020. He said he was almost dead.

“It was after my 60th birthday party which I resisted so much and it exposed me to people who had already tested positive.

“I dined with them and even for some people, they did not even have their nose masks on while others had theirs down the chin.”

“For over two weeks I was in quarantine; my nose was blocked and my bed was as if water had been poured on it coupled with a fever and within five days, I had lost weight drastically,” he recounted.

“I have recovered now and not shy to talk about it because I am a testimony but the disease is so real and we don’t have to joke with it,” Mr. Agyapong urged.

Kennedy is not the only politician who tested positive and recovered. Former New Patriotic Party Secretary-General Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, popularly known as Sir John, is the only politician who died of the deadly disease
