 Focus On Declining Cases Of Covid 19- GHS

The Ghana Health Service (GHS) is calling on stakeholders to focus attention on the active cases of COVID-19 and not cumulative cases.

Director General of the Ghana Health Service (GHS), Dr Patrick Kuma-Aboagye, made the call at a press briefing in Accra yesterday.

He said given the high recovery rates among COVID-19 patients, conversations around the virus should be focused on the decreasing trend of active cases in the country.

Now Ghana active cases of Covid-19 stands at 4,270 with cumulative cases now 27,667.Deaths related to virus in Ghana are now 148 and 23,249 recoveries.

Dr. Kuma-Aboagye said Ghanaians should not focus on the cumulative positive count because majority of them have already recovered but the more important indicator is the active cases.

He further indicated that in analyzing whether government is doing well in the fight against the virus in the country, there is the need to compare the country’s active cases against its confirmed cases.
