Ghana’s coronavirus recovery count may surge past 400 by the end of the week as the Ghana Health Service is expecting the test results of over 200 patients.
According to the Director-General of the Ghana Health Service, Dr. Patrick Kumah Aboagye, these persons have already tested negative to the virus after treatment but are awaiting a second test to guarantee that they have indeed recovered from the virus.
Dr. Patrick Aboagye said this at Tuesday’s Minister’s press briefing organized by the Ministry of Information to update Ghanaians on the coronavirus situation in the country.
“Currently we have about 294 of the patients who have recovered after testing negative on two consecutive times and we currently have more than 200 patients awaiting their second negative test so that they can also be declared recovered and discharged,” he said.
Ghana reaches peak for COVID-19
Director of Public Service at the Service, Dr. Badu-Sarkodie says that the sharp rise in the number of cases recorded in the country suggests that Ghana is at its peak, hence, cases will start to decline.
He was, however, quick to add that the declination was dependent on the level of adherence to the safety protocols announced by Health officials.
