COVID-19: Ghana Hit 834 Cases - GHS Reports

The novel Coronavirus case count has increased to 834.

This comes after 193 new cases were recorded from various parts of the country, according to the Ghana Health Service (GHS).

In its routine updates, the GHS said the new development was mainly due to the enhanced contact-tracing and testing process which is ongoing.

The exercise has resulted in some 57,000 samples taken and undergoing testing. From that number, there was a backlog of about 12,000 samples.

The various testing centers reported 193 new positive cases from the first batch of the backlog.

“The Ghana Health Service is supervising the completion of a backlog of laboratory samples which have been picked for testing as part of the COVID-19 testing exercise. This is after some 57,000 samples have already been 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,” the Ghana Health Service indicated.
