After lifting the nationwide lockdown 10 days back – which prompted mass celebrations – Ghana has now recorded 1,032 new cases of coronavirus.
Ghana has recorded more than 1,000 additional cases of COVID-19 since the country lifted its lockdown.
Ghana 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.
However, 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 country in the West African region to lift the restriction on movement.
