17 COVID-19 Patients Recover In Ghana
The Director-General of the Ghana Health Service, Dr. Patrick Aboagye has disclosed that 17 people who were infected with the coronavirus epidemic have recovered fully.
According to him, he said that they will be kept in isolation and monitored for about four weeks.
After this period, more tests will be conducted before they are declared to have fully recovered.
“We have 17 persons who have recorded double negatives and are obviously clinically cured,” Dr. Patrick Aboagye, the Director-General of the Ghana Health Service disclosed at a press briefing on Tuesday.
“Currently, we have a definition of recovered as those who are positive and have recorded consecutive negative [tests],” he explained.
Dr. Aboagye assured that the treatment of infected persons was going well noting that, “case management is very good especially for those who come early.”
The development brings relief to many as Accra, Kumasi and Kasoa enter week three of a partial lockdown to curb the spread of coronavirus in the country.
The Ghana Health Service (GHS) has confirmed 158 new cases of the Coronavirus disease.
This brings the total number of cases in the country to 566.
