COVID-19: Ghana Records 25 More Cases; 52 Confirmed Now!

Ghana's coronavirus cases have risen astronomically to 52, according to Health Minister Kwaku Agyemang Manu.

He made this disturbing disclosure at a press conference on Tuesday.

According to him, 25 new cases are imported from the 1,030 people who are under mandatory self-quarantine in some hotels in Accra.

"Out of the 185 test results received, we have 25 of those quarantined tested positive. If you add on to the earlier number of 27, it means we have 52 tested positive in our country at the moment. Those in quarantine, we have actually deployed psychologists to have chats with them. We are also in the process of handing them over to our case management teams we have set up. We have started taking them to isolated centers for case management," the Health Minister said.

Ghana’s president Nana Akufo-Addo announced in an address to the nation on Saturday that all borders – air, land and sea – will be closed to human traffic from Sunday midnight in a bid to contain the Covid-19 disease.

“This closure will not apply to goods, supplies and cargo,” he said in the address.

He warned that anybody who arrives in the country within the next two weeks will undergo “mandatory quarantine” and tested for the coronavirus.

In a related development, Immigration officials say 21 persons have been arrested at the Elubo border for attempting to enter Ghana illegally.
