Ghana is said to be recording “lower daily numbers of infections.”
According to President Akufo-Addo, this is welcome news and reinforces the belief that measures employed to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus pandemic are working.
Accounting for what has been described as a surge in the country’s COVID-cases over the last 72 hours, the President in a televised address Sunday, May 10, 2020, gave a breakdown of the country’s current situation over the last few days.
“On Friday, a total of 5,253 tests were conducted, with 251 positives. On Saturday, 2,255 tests were conducted, with 266 found to be positive. For today, Sunday, a total of 3,045 tests have been done with 160 testing positive,” he said.
These relatively lower numbers, the President believes, “reinforces the fact that the measures instituted to help reduce person-to-person contact, and help reduce the pandemic are working.”
Ghana’s COVID-19 case count is currently 4,700 cases including 22 deaths and 494 recoveries.
