INSIDE STORY: How COVID-19 nearly killed JoyNews’ Raymond Acquah with no underlying condition
Multimedia wing Joy News journalist Raymond Acquah was almost killed by the deadly Covid-19 pandemic but thankfully, he pulled through after extensive care from staff of Nyaho Clinic in Accra.
While many Ghanaians appear to have let their guard down over the pandemic, Mr. Acquah’s story simply means the threat of the pandemic is real and continues to wreak more havoc to unsuspecting members of the society.
According to him, he got to a point where he gave up and asked God to take his life and put him out of his misery as he was really suffering.
“There was a point, when the going got tough and they kept upgrading my respirators for oxygen with more complex machines, I just asked God to take my life away and put me out of my misery!” He cried.
“I rise this day to thank the Almighty for keeping me alive!” He wrote.

Covid-19 battered, bruised and brought me to the lowest ebb!
There was a point, when the going got tough and they kept upgrading my respirators for oxygen with more complex machines, I just asked God to take my life away and put me out of my misery!
But God came through for me.
I am also eternally grateful to my wife MzGee Ghana, who braved the storm to help me pull through it all!
To my doctor Dr. Tanko, those wonderful doctors at Nyaho Medical Centre especially, Ofori Anti and Dekpor and their lovely nurses! I say ayekoo!
