Rawlings Did Not Die Of COVID 19 by LePrezident(m): 1:59pm On Nov 19, 2020


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.”

Malaria and Covid-19 share some symptoms. This spokesperson is just saying rubbish. All he needs to prove his point is /mr. Rawlings medical record. He doesn't have and hasn't seen it but he still made a positive claim without evidence.

Fake news has finally gained massive ground in the modern journalism. It's becoming harder to separate true reports as they happen from fake ones.

Some folks and media houses want to sell their brand by hurriedly post breaking news without fact checking.

JJR was a great and well respected leader who's principled leadership that reset governance in Ghana will forever be remembered.

People and media houses should not desecrate his memory by alluding erroneous cause of death to his memory.

Did you read the part where he said that Rawlings is known to have a heart condition and has been supported by a pacemaker for years? This is the reason why he was admitted at the Cardiothoracic centre to treat both the malaria and the heart issue with his pace maker.

That part changes nothing. Rawlings health record will prove the cause of death.
