Ghana’s Covid-19 case count now 17,351

Ghana has so far recorded 17,351 coronavirus cases. President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, who disclosed this in his 13th broadcast to the nation on the COVID-19 pandemic, noted that, “This means that, currently, we have 4,245 active cases, having conducted 294,867 tests, one of the highest on the continent”.

The said 30 persons were severely and critically ill, and that the nation had a total of 112 sad deaths, constituting 0.6 per cent of positives, as “we maintain one of the lowest death rates in the world.”

He urged Ghanaians to take the virus serious and adhere to all safety protocols as some people do not take it serious.
“Unfortunately, we still have some persons in the country who are not taking the dangers associated with this disease seriously, and, therefore, do not seek medical help as soon as they have symptoms that suggest an infection of the virus,” the President stated.

“There should be no fear of stigmatisation or embarrassment with being diagnosed with COVID-19. So, please, when you begin to experience symptoms such as fever, persistent cough, bodily pains, loss of taste and smell, and difficulty in breathing, seek immediate medical attention at the nearest health facility.”

President Akufo-Addo said most patients, who were critically ill and needed intensive care, did indeed, survive the virus, if they sought medical help promptly.
