The number of positive cases of Ghana’s COVID-19 cases keeps increasing day by day.

In a new report confirmed on the cases, Ghana has recorded 193 more cases of the deadly COVID-19 putting the country’s total cases count at 834.

The new cases were recorded from the enhanced contact tracing and testing being undertaken by the Ghana Health Service.

Thus far 9 persons have died from the disease while 99 people have recovered and discharged.

The new cases were detected after some 57,000 samples were successfully tested as of April 15th 2020. In the first batch of this backlog, an additional 198 have been found to be positive. This will bring Ghana’s total case count to 834 at the moment.

The general public is, however, advised that this does not represent new infections that are occurring. It represents results from tests of a backlog of samples.

Total samples tested so far now stands at 60, 916 with 1.37 % testing positive. The results of these backlog of samples when released does not mean the number of new cases recorded on the day of the report.

Regions that have reported cases are Greater Accra, Ashanti, Eastern, Northern, Volta, Upper East, Upper West, Central, Western and North East,” The Ghana Health Service said.
