Greater Accra Leads – GHS – Covid Cases Are Rising


According to the Ghana Health Service, the Greater Accra Region accounts for 90% of all new coronavirus infections in Ghana (GHS).

The ten percent comes from seven additional locations in the southern sector, according to the Service.

The Ghana Health Service (GHS) has reported 62 new cases in the last two weeks, with the outbreak beginning in Accra and spreading to other regions of the nation, according to the GHS.

Dr. Franklin Asiedu-Bekoe, the GHS Director of Public Health, said on 3FM’s Sunrise on Monday, June 6 that “the 62 new cases are predominantly in greater Accra.”

“It started two weeks ago and the gradual increase started in Accra, but now it is in seven regions.” He added, “They are in the southern regions but 90% of cases are in the Greater Accra Region.”

“some of the cases were recorded in work places, parties and conferences,” the Director explained when asked where these cases are being recorded.

Ghanaians should not believe that Covid-19 is history, according to Dr. Asiedu-Bekoe.

“COVID is not over yet. The public should not have that misconception, unless the World Health Organization declares it over.”
