Rawlings did not Die of COVID 19 – Kofi Adams

A former spokesperson for late Ghanaian ex President Jerry John Rawlings, Kofi Adams, has totally rubbished claims that the former President died as a result of complications from COVID-19.

According to Mr. Adams, “if it was COVID, we know where that treatment centre is, so he would have been sent there and doctors who attended to him would have done so fully protected with the appropriate protective wear but that was not the case.”

He said this whiles speaking with Umaru Sanda Amadu on Citi TV’s on ‘Face to Face’ program.

Mr. Adams says that as far as he is knows, the ex President was being treated for something entirely different.

Mr. Jerry John Rawlings passed on the 12th of November 2020, at the Cardiothoracic Centre of the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra. He was aged 73 at the time of his passing.

There were unsubstantiated claims that the former President died due because he had been infected with COVID-19.

“As far as I know, he was just treating Malaria, COVID-19 is nowhere near any of the reasons why he was hospitalized,” Mr. Kofi Adams insisted.

When asked by the host of Face to Face, Umaru Sanda Amadu, about why the former President was receiving treatment at the Cardiothoracic Centre, Mr. Adams said: “he [Rawlings] had complained of heart problems…and he has indicated that his pacemaker had been worked on, and he opened up on this health issue in an interview before, but things were normalized.”
