Ghana records 198 new COVID-19 cases, as active cases pass 1,000

Ghana has recorded 198 new COVID-19 infections, bringing its active cases to 1,156.

Out of this, four persons are in critical condition while two are on ventilators.

According to the Ghana Health Service (GHS), eleven others are in severe conditions. The death toll stands at 320.

The country recorded its first coronavirus case on March 12, 2020.

Since then, Ghana has recorded a total of 49, 202 cases.

47, 726 persons who tested positive for the novel coronavirus disease have either recovered or have been discharged.

This data was contained in an update provided by the GHS as of November 9, 2020.

Ghana has seen a steady rise in its active COVID-19 cases over the past week.

As of October 29, there were 620 active cases of the dreaded diseases in Ghana, but within seven days, the caseload jumped to 947 active cases.

The figure represents an almost 53% increase in the number of new cases in the last seven days.

Now it has hit 1,156.

Instead of the steady decline that had the country’s cases going below 500 in September, the country is witnessing a new wave of infections.

Medical experts have raised concerns over the latest development warning that the country risks going back into a lockdown to curb the spread of the disease.

The General Secretary of the Ghana Medical Association (GMA), Dr. Titus Bayuo, lamented the disregard for the safety protocols could hamper the fight against the disease.

“If it comes to enforcement of law it lies within the domain of government and its security agencies in making sure people protect themselves. If we don’t take care of ourselves, and looking at the trajectory, we might have to go back to lockdown but if that can be avoided, why not,” Dr. Bayuo said on Monday on Starr FM.

He added “If we don’t protect ourselves and the cases keep going up, the only way is to get people restricted. Is that what we want? If that’s not what we want, then we must act now. We advised politicians right from the beginning that they should use innovative ways of campaigning. It’s just normal that when we continue to engage in such activities, we know what to expect, a boom in COVID-19 cases”.
