About 10 days after lifting the nationwide lockdown, which prompted mass celebrations on their streets, Ghana has now recorded 1,032 new cases of coronavirus.
The Republic of Ghana has recorded more than 1,000 additional cases of COVID-19 since the country lifted its lockdown.
Ghanaian President, Nana Akufo-Addo lifted a three-week lockdown on the basis of “improved coronavirus testing”, on the 19th of April 2020, with the nation recording 1,042 cases, and 99 recoveries at that time.
But in a recent development, figures from the Ghana’s ministry of health yesterday showed that the country currently has 2,074 confirmed cases of COVID-19, out of which 212 recoveries and 17 deaths have been recorded, showing an increase in number of confirmed cases since the restrictions were eased.
Ghana is the first West African country to lift the restriction on movement of its citizens.
