Ghana: worrying rise in COVID-19 cases

The Ghana Health Service (GHS) announced that the country is experiencing a resurgence of COVID-19, as 62 new cases have been detected, most of them from the Greater Accra region.

GHS Director of Public Health, Dr Franklin Asiedu-Bekoe said the cases had been recorded in the past two weeks, adding that 90% of them were in the Greater Accra region.

“It started two weeks ago, and the gradual increase started in Accra, but now it is in seven regions. They are in the southern regions, but 90% of cases are in the Greater Accra Region,” he said.

The Doctor urged the public to practice the measures to prevent and contain the spread of the pandemic.

“COVID is not over yet. The public should not have that misconception unless the World Health Organization declares it over,” he stated.
