Ghana is about to enter a critical phase of the fight against the deadly COVID-19 pandemic.

According to President Akufo Addo, results of some 15,384 persons out of the 19,000 reached through contact-tracing will determine the country’s next line of action.

“It is the results of these tests that will determine our future course of action. Government’s policy and measures will continue to be driven by the science in this matter. The Ghana Academy of Arts and Sciences and the Centre for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) are now partnering government in the struggle. I met with their representatives on Friday and arranged with them a mechanism for the realisation of this partnership. The nation and I appreciate their involvement,” he said in a televised address to the country on Sunday, April 5, 2020.

Health experts envisage that the results might see a surge in the country’s confirmed coronavirus cases.

As to whether or not, the country might see an extension of the lockdown, the President said: “in the course of the coming week, a determination will be made.”
