Ghana’s former president John Dramani Mahama has expressed worry over the increasing number of COVID-19 cases Ghana continues to record.
According to the National Democratic Congress (NDC) flag bearer, the NPP government is failing Ghanaians in the fight to curb the spread of the deadly virus.
In a social media post, Mr. Mahama said, “fear gripped many homes last night when the latest confirmed cases were released,” and encouraged Ghanaians to protect themselves and abide by the WHO and health experts’ protocols.
Ghana’s case count of the novel Coronavirus has shot up to 4,012 as captured by the Ghana Health Service (GHS) website on Friday, May 8, 2020.
According to GHS, “Over 50% of these cases were as a result of an outbreak in an industrial facility with 1,300 workers of which 533 have been confirmed positive.”
The website, however, did not give the name of the industrial facility. The COVID-19 death count in Ghana according to the GHS remains at 18. The recoveries have also increased to 323.
