COVID-19 infections in children on the rise – GHS

Source The Ghana Report

The Ghana Health Service (GHS) has expressed worry over the rate at which children between the ages of 0 and 15 are contracting COVID-19 in Accra.

According to the service, data indicates cases involving children increased from 18 percent to 20 percent in June 2022.

Therefore, the Director-General of the GHS, Dr. Patrick Kuma Aboagye, has notified Ghanaians to find ways to protect children as vaccines are unavailable for children.

“Something has to be done as far as the protection of children is concerned because they are not vaccinated to give them the protection they need,” he said.

At the peak of the pandemic in 2020, fewer cases were recorded in children globally, but the trend seems to have reversed according to the latest numbers from the GHS.

Ghana currently has 1,308 active cases of the virus, of which 1,023 are in the Greater Accra Region.

In total, Ghana has recorded 164,541 cases with 1,448 deaths.

Ghana has also administered 16,752,032 doses of the coronavirus vaccine.

Children, however, are not part of the vaccinated groups yet.

The health service has said there are 7.2 million people fully vaccinated, representing 22 percent of the population.

Over one million people have received booster shots of the vaccine, and more than 10 million have received at least one dose of the vaccine.
