The Chief Executive Officer of the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA), Dr Lydia Dsane-Selby, has tested positive for the Coronavirus disease (Covid-19).

Dr Dsane-Selby tested positive for the disease on Sunday, June 14, 2020.

Speaking in a radio interview with Accra-based Asaase Radio on Tuesday, Dr Dsane-Selby said she tested positive for the disease after experiencing tiredness, body pains and headaches.

She said she contacted a colleague at the Noguchi Medical Institute for Medical Research (NMIMR)and “a team came to the house and tested and I tested positive.”

“I live with my mother. Luckily, she tested negative and so did the house help. So I immediately self-quarantined,” she told the radio station in the interview.

“I’m fine. It feels like a bad bout of malaria. I just felt tired, quite a lot of body pains, muscle ache, headaches at the beginning but not anymore,” she said.

Dr Dsane-Selby said she has contacted all those she came into contact with over the last few days “and they’ve been for testing, and as far as I’m aware, they’re negative.”
