Ghana records 22 deaths in two weeks as Covid-19 cases soar

Ghana’s coronavirus death rate seems to have risen sharply in recent weeks.

From the periodic statistics given by the Disease Surveillance Department of the Ghana Health Service (GHS), the deaths have risen from 799 as at Sunday, July 11 to 821 as at Sunday, July 25.

And with the cases not commensurate with the current date, more deaths may have been recorded.

Indeed, the latest case count are for data collated as of Wednesday, July 21.

The rise in deaths as well as infections has been attributed to the new variant of the virus, Delta, which is said to spread faster and kill easily.

According to the Noguchi Memorial Institute of Medical Research (NMIMR), the new variant takes longer than normal to clear.

“It has been observed that the positive individuals are taking longer to clear the virus,” a report from the Institute’s Response Team said on Saturday, July 24.

So far, 101,170 Covid-19 cases have been recorded since the virus hit the country in 2020.
