Twenty-five more cases of coronavirus have been confirmed, the government has announced.
This brings to fifty-two the number of cases confirmed so far.
The new cases are among some one thousand thirty people who have been mandatorily quarantined upon entering Ghana just before the country’s entry points were all closed to human traffic on Sunday.
Health Minister Kweku Agyemang-Manu, who made the revelation on Tuesday, said: “Out of the 185 test results received, we have 25 of those quarantined testing positive. If we add on to the earlier number of 27, it means we have 52 people testing positive in our country at the moment”.
So far, samples have been taken from 611 of the over one thousand people who arrived into the country recently just before the government closed the country’s borders on Sunday.
So far, 382,431 cases have been recorded worldwide with 16,573 deaths while 102,513 have fully recovered.
