The Ghana Health Service (GHS) has indicated that Ghana recorded 2,500 COVID-19 cases from the 1st to 14th of July 2021.
According to GHS, the upsurge in the cases is alarming.
Speaking at a press conference on Wednesday, the Director-General of the Ghana Health Service, Dr. Patrick Kuma-Aboagye, said the total Covid-19 cases recorded in the country are close to 100,000 with 818 deaths.
“In the past two weeks; from the 1st to the 14th of July, we have cumulatively recorded 2,500 cases. So that tells you that if you look at the period where we were a bit quiet, it’s almost three to four times the number we are doing now. This means that something is not right.”
He also added that currently, 15 out of the 16 regions have active cases, with increasing numbers in the Greater Accra and Ashanti Regions.
There has been a surge in COVID numbers, prompting the health service to hold a crisis management meeting and make recommendations to avert a full-blown third wave.
