Report coming in is that a police officer at Adenta in Accra in the Greater Accra region has tested positive for COVID-19.

The officer(name withheld) reportedly contracted the virus after a suspect who defied the lockdown directive was kept in custody at the Adenta Police cells.

A report sighted on Starrfm.com.gh indicates that the suspect, who was apparently positive of the virus, was detained for a longer period at the Adenta police cells after a court hearing.

The continuous detainment of the suspect was because the Prisons service was not accepting new inmates as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The police officer has been asked to self-quarantine.
