According to the Director of Public Health at the Ghana Health Service, Dr. Badu Sarkodie, Ghana’s coronavirus cases have reached 5530 with 24 deaths and 674 recoveries.
The new 122 cases were announced by him at the Information Ministry’s media briefing session on the Coronavirus situation in Ghana.
Ghana began this week with 4,700 cases of COVID-19 cases. However, it recorded 427 more on Tuesday, May 12, 2020, making the number 5127.
On Wednesday evening, the number again went up by 281 new cases and barely 12 hours after that, Ghana’s cases have gone up yet again.
The Health Minister, meanwhile, has announced that the authorities will arrest persons who fail to adhere to precautionary measures especially wearing of the nose masks.
Kwaku Agyeman Manu, speaking at this morning’s Minister’s Press Briefing, said while the threat of the Coronavirus spreading still exists, the precautions needed to stop its spread remain simple and should not be a problem for people to follow.
“They (the safety protocols) are not difficult to do so I don’t understand why some of us do not do these things. We have been thinking about what to do next to enforce strict compliance with these basic guidelines, we are working on that and believe very soon we will see the police arresting some of us who are becoming too recalcitrant.”
