The Liverpool forward Sadio Mané has tested positive for coronavirus, the club has announced. Mané is self-isolating with what the club described as “minor symptoms”.

A club statement read: “Sadio Mané has tested positive for Covid-19 and is currently self-isolating according to the necessary guidelines.

“The forward, who started and scored in Monday’s 3-1 victory over Arsenal, has displayed minor symptoms of the virus but feels in good health overall.

“However, like with Thiago Alcântara, Liverpool Football Club are – and will continue to – follow all protocols relating to Covid-19 and Mané will self-isolate for the required period of time.”

Mané was not part of Liverpool’s squad on Thursday night when the Merseyside club went out on penalties to Arsenal in the Carabao Cup fourth round. Both Thiago and Mané will both be absent for Sunday’s Premier League trip to Aston Villa.

Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp will hope to have both players available when his side returns to action after the international break on 17 October for the Merseyside derby at Everton.

Mané, 28, has been in fine form this season, scoring both goals in Liverpool’s win over Chelsea before also netting against the Gunners.

His enforced isolation will also affect his international commitments after Mané was named in Senegal’s squad for their upcoming friendlies against Morocco and Mauritania.

Fuel Prices Goes Up By 50p, Crosses GH¢11 Threshold Mark In Less Than 24 Hours

Fuel Prices Goes Up By 50p, Crosses GH¢11 Threshold Mark In Less Than 24 Hours, GlitzEmpire





Fuel prices continue to soar, topping GH¢11.30 per litre in the third week of March 2022 at some stations. Other Oil Marketing Companies are expected to hike their prices as a result of this.

As we reported it early on, The Chamber of Petroleum Consumers Ghana (COPEC) predicted that diesel may cross the GH¢10 per litre mark.

It added that petrol will cross GH¢9 from Wednesday, March 16, 2022.

COPEC attributed its prediction on the rising cost of crude on the international market and the cedi which is currently depreciating among major trading currencies.

In a statement, it noted that the Free On Board prices of petrol increased by 19.28% from $917.48/MT to 1094.33/MT, diesel by 34.57% from $845.50/MT to $1137.78/MT and LPG by 17.42% from $845.93/MT to $993.25/MT between the first pricing window (1st-15th March 2022) and the second window (16th -31st March 2022).

“The petroleum price indicators as published by the NPA shows that the price of Gasoil (diesel) will increase by 30.41% from GH¢8.22 per litre in this current window to Gh¢10.721 per litre beginning 16th March 2022 and ex-pump prices of Gasoline (petrol) will increase by 18.25% from GH¢8.22 per litre to GH¢727 per litre within the same period.”

COPEC has also noted that the cedi has seen a sharp depreciation against the dollar by 9.71% from GHS6.8360 to GHS7.500 to a dollar.

In addition, COPEC has said the ex-pump prices of LPG will also increase by 23% from GHS 9.8 per kg in this current window to GH¢12.04 per kg in the next window beginning March 16, 2022.

“This implies that a 14.5kg will be sold at Ghc174.58,” COPEC added.

Prices of fuel have gone up at the pumps across the country because the Price Stabilization and Energy Recovery levy, which is a key component of the fuel price build-up, has been restored by the National Petroleum Authority (NPA) after it was suspended for about three months.

The levy was suspended last year as a means of reducing the burden on consumers.

Already, COPEC has called for the withdrawal of the levy and has now urged the government to adopt the dual pricing module to stabilise fuel prices and the accompanying economic difficulties.
