Covid Cases Up Again; Accra Leads – GHS
According to the Ghana Health Service (GHS), the Greater Accra Region accounts for 90% of all new coronavirus cases in Ghana.
The ten percent comes from seven additional regions in the southern sector, according to the Service.
The Ghana Health Service (GHS) has reported 62 new cases in the last two weeks, with the outbreak beginning in Accra and spreading to other parts of the country, according to the GHS.
Dr. Franklin Asiedu-Bekoe, the GHS Director of Public Health, said in an interview that “the 62 new cases are largely in greater Accra.”
“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 revealed.
Ghanaians should not believe that Covid-19 is finished, according to Dr. Asiedu-Bekoe.
“COVID is not over yet. The public should not have that misconception, unless the World Health Organization declares it over.”
