Albert Owusu Sarpong: 20-Year-old Ghana Student’s Post-Injection Death Highlights the Importance of Diligent Reporting
Mr. Albert Owusu Sarpong.
ACCRA — A 20-year-old Ghanaian political science student is dead, in a story that shines a spotlight on a disturbing trend we’ve noticed in the last two months.
A man identified via his Twitter handle as Jashua Wonder tweeted a video that went viral on December 15. He claimed that one of his college roommates from the University of Legon died that morning after receiving an mRNA or viral vector DNA injection “two days ago.” Wonder identified the roommate as 20-year-old Albert Owusu Sarpong. It’s unclear which injection Mr. Sarpong received. The big three, plus Sputnik V (Russia) and AstraZeneca, are all available in Ghana. Only 5% of Ghana’s 32 million citizens are “fully vaccinated” as of publishing.
