Ghana’s Covid-19 cases decline steadily – GHS boss.


The Director-General of the Ghana Health Service, Dr Patrick Kuma-Aboagye has disclosed that Ghana’s Covid-19 case count is seeing a gradual decline.

This was at a press briefing with journalists when he said the gradual decline was based on the reduction in active cases recorded by health facilities across the country recently.

“Active cases declined from over 8,000 to less than 5,000 over the past 4 weeks” he disclosed.

According to the DG, the trend was realized before the Covid-19 vaccination programme began on March 2, 2021.

Giving details on the daily reported cases, the GHS boss stated that the number of reported cases at the health facilities had declined from 800 cases to about 400 within a month; and this development had resulted in the reduction of patient admissions in the hospitals from a daily number of 270 to about 150 cases in the Greater Accra Region which is the epicentre of the coronavirus pandemic.

The DG also mentioned that over 200,000 persons have had their first jab of the COVID-19 vaccination while they wait for the second dose, which begins in April 2021. He indicated that there has been a total number of 81,299 (93.7%) discharges/recoveries, 656 deaths (CFR of 0.76%) and a total of 4,782 (5.5%) active cases so far.

In connection with hospitalization, the number of critical cases admitted at various hospitals is 25. There are a total number of 66 severe cases and a total number of 86 mild to moderate cases.

This brings the hospitalization cases to a total of 177.
