Ghana’s coronavirus cases have moved from 27 as at last night to 52 hours ago.
Ghana’s Health Minister Kwaku Agyemang made that announcement at the Presser in Accra on Tuesday.
“Out of the 185 test results received, we have 25 of those quarantined tested positive. If you add on to the earlier number of 27, it means we have 52 tested positive in our country at the moment.
“Those in quarantine, we have actually deployed psychologists to have chats with them. We are also in the process of handing them over to our case management teams we have set up. We have started taking them to isolated centres for case management.”
The Minister added that out of the 52 confirmed cases, two persons have died.
Speaking to journalists on March 18, 2020 with regard to the fight against coronavirus, Mr. Oppong Nkrumah said :
“the health experts tell us that the next two weeks are going to be critical in determining whether or not we are going to get significant community spread. They tell us that the general theory pandemic management is that often it is likely the numbers go up a bit before it curves or the situation gets better.
“Therefore, they are bracing for the possibility of some limited recordings of more cases in the medium term but they continue to assure us that the systems they are putting together and continue to ramp-up are such that we will be able to contain it and hold this virus in check.”
Let’s pray for Ghana as things get worse.
