50 more workers of the Jubilee Field operated by Tullow Oil have been confirmed positive for the novel coronavirus pandemic.

The patients who are all asymptomatic are said to be undergoing treatment at various health facilities in the Western region.

“There were two cases that were confirmed and we did some contact tracing and about 50 of them are positive and they are asymptomatic,” the Western Regional Director of Health, Dr. Jacob Mahama, told Accra-based Citi News.

Dr. Mahama explained that the infected persons, likely to be working on the Kwame Nkrumah FPSO and MV Lancelot, are being isolated in Accra and Takoradi.

He made this known after an emergency meeting with the Western Regional Minister.

Tullow Oil Ghana on Tuesday, May 26, 2020, confirmed that two of its contract staff had contracted the virus.

The company then introduced a general screening as a result and introduced strict quarantine procedures for all personnel working offshore including two weeks of government-approved quarantine.

The Western Region currently has 395 known infections with the country’s COVID-19 case count rising to 7,616.
