The Health Minister, Kwaku Agyemang Manu has disclosed that 31 persons out of Ghana’s 153 active cases of coronavirus infections have been discharged from admission after going through periods of management in isolation.
Speaking in an interview the minister disclosed that the 31 persons will be monitored closely in their respective homes by the ministry and the Ghana Health Service to check progress of their full recovery.
“We have conducted some tests and 31 persons out of the total active cases have not shown symptoms.” He said.
Underscoring that Ghanaians should remain calm as government manages the spread of the virus, the minister said some five persons who have so far lost their lives to the virus in Ghana had pre-existing medical conditions or were aged, which contributed to their demise.
“I keep on emphasising that the fatality rate in Ghana is very low so Ghanaians should not be scared. The five persons who have already lost their lives had underlying medical conditions.” He added.
Ever since recording its first two cases of coronavirus, Ghana has gone on to record 161 cases with five deaths and three recoveries.
The minister’s announcement means that Ghana now has 3 recoveries, 31 discharged and five deaths out of 161 confirmed infections of COVID-19.
