Apparently, the mayor’s personal driver had tested positive for the novel Coronavirus a few weeks ago. The driver was then put into isolation but the mayor carried on with work despite calls for him to self-isolate.

Hon. Sam had led arrangements towards the closure of four major markets in Takoradi on 28th May 2020 due to an increase in COVID-19 cases. He also supervised mass testing for COVID-19 for all Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolitan Assembly.
