Vice President of IMANI Africa, Kofi Bentil has called on Ghanaians to commend the Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research (NMIMR) for its outstanding work in the fight against the novel coronavirus.

Ghana has received appraisals from leaders across the globe for its COVID-19 testing method which has now seen it placing second on the league table of African countries that have carried out the most tests and amongst the first 20 in the world.

Currently, Ghana has recorded 2,074 COVID-19 cases with 212 recoveries and 17 deaths, with thousands of tests being conducted.

On the other hand, countries like Nigeria are struggling, with testing output stuck at 0.0055% of the population as compared to Ghana’s 0.328%, which is 60 times higher.

A Director-General of the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control, Dr. Chikwe Ihekweazu early this month, commended Ghana proclaiming how he respects the country’s COVID-19 testing approach.

According to him, “Ghana has a different approach to testing. I know exactly what they are doing. I respect what they are doing…I want to assure everyone that we have learnt a lot of lessons from this. One of the biggest ones is that you have to build up your laboratory capacity.”

However, the enhanced testing approach by the Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research has helped government detect and identify more cases of people who have contracted the coronavirus, with most of them being asymptomatic.

Due to that, the Vice President of IMANI Africa, Kofi Bentil says the staff of Ghana’s testing lab, Noguchi must be commended for an amazing job done.

“The best news is that Ghana again is showing leadership in this area. We must commend the leaders and the team at Noguchi. You are amazing,” he posted on his Facebook wall.
