Mr. Agyapong’s 60th birthday fell on the 16th of June this year.
He narrated his near death to Alfred Amoh of Adom News, saying that he had to self isolate for weeks.
“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,” he said.
“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 recalled.
Some weeks ago, a video of Mr. Agyapong’s birthday celebration went viral on social media where he was seen sitting round a table with his family members and friends having a feast.
His party was climaxed with a toast proposed by a former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Ghana Maritime Authority, Kwame Owusu. The toast was a funny one that got the crowd rolling in laughter and applause.
Many people who saw the video on social media expressed their concerns about the breach of COVID protocols as was seen in the video. There was no social distancing nor were there enough people wearing nose masks.
Mr. Kennedy Agyapong said that it is important to acknowledge the the Corona virus is real and people should endeavour to observe the protocols.
“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.
