In an interview with Abusua FM, the Vice President of GMA, Dr. Frank Serebour, opined that a number of complaints have come to the attention of physicians across the country for response and treatment.
According to him, a lot of people who have recovered from the COVID-19 infection are developing other health abnormalities while others have no other complications.
“The aftereffect of COVID-19 is becoming serious, people are suffering here and there, even some studies which suggest some men who have fully recovered from the virus infection are not experiencing penis erection for sexual pleasure,’’ he disclosed.
“These are things we have to let the general public know and understand the need to adhere to all the COVID-19 safety protocols including hand washing, wearing of face masks, and strict adherence to physical social distancing,” he stressed.
Dr. Frank Serebour, however, urged the general public to note that the after-effects of COVID-19 after fully recovering are becoming many.
