Ghana has confirmed 21,968 COVID-19 cases after 891 new infections were detected in 73 districts, the country’s health services said on Tuesday.

Clinical recoveries are up to 17,156 with the death count standing at 129.

The death rate from the virus in Ghana has been noted as 0.58 percent. There are 4,683 active cases of which 22 are severe cases.

Six of the severe cases are in a critical condition and five are on ventilators.

For the bulk of the new cases, 571 were recorded in 24 districts in the Greater Accra Region, 93 cases from 18 districts in the Ashanti Region and 86 from five districts in the Western Region.

At a press briefing on Tuesday, the Director-General of the Ghana Health Service, Dr Patrick Kuma-Aboagye, said these new cases are from samples dating back “mainly from June 26 to July 3.”

He estimated that Ghana was recording “about 400” new cases a day.

In line with recent trends, Dr. Kuma-Aboagye noted the Western, Greater Accra and the Ashanti regions as the places “with the greatest challenges” so far with respect to the virus.

“These are areas we need to step up our effort to ensure that we follow the protocols,” he added.
