Government of Ghana has created a new quarantine centre at Tamale in the Northern Region to help augment existing ones in the Greater Accra and Ashanti Regions.

Health Minister, Kwaku Agyemang Manu announced this at a media encounter in Accra on Sunday, March 29, 2020.

According to him, the new quarantine centre was created in Tamale after the northern part of the country recorded new cases of COVID-19 from 10 Guinean nationals who entered the country illegally a few days ago.

“We now have created a quarantine centre at Tamale and this afternoon we have put in 10 tested positive cases. All these 10 in Tamale are foreign nationals, none of them is a Ghanaian yet. Information we have from the case management people is that all those who tested positive are in very good condition. They are not sick yet, but they have started engaging them for treatment,” he stated.

However, Information Minister, Kojo Opppong Nkrumah has revealed that the foreigners will be repatriated to their country to be treated there.

The country today recorded 11 new cases of COVID-19 bringing the total confirmed cases to152. Ten of the new cases are Guinean nationals who travelled through Burkina Faso and Togo to Ghana illegally and were picked following intelligence report.

The eleventh case was recorded in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region.

So far, the Greater Accra Region has recorded 133 cases; which included those in mandatory quarantine, while Ashanti Region, Upper West Region and Northern Region have recorded 8, 1 and 10 respectively.
