It was not clearly stated as to what caused the medical drone to crash.

YEN.com.gh would, however, keep readers updated with the cause of the crash.

Ghana began the delivery of medical supplies with the use of drones last year, 2019 with the commissioning of the first centre at Omenako in the Eastern Region.

Since then, two more centres in Mampong and Kukuaa have been set up.

A fourth distribution centre at Sefwi Wiawso in the Western North Region is still underway and is expected to be commissioned by the end of 2020.

The minister, Kwaku Agyeman-Manu in a statement on Thursday, February 6, 2020, allayed the fears of Ghanaians saying the state is doing everything possible to prevent the deadly virus from reaching the country.

“We wish to provide assurance to Ghanaians the government is doing everything possible to prevent and protect against the importation of the virus into the country and prevent its spread,” Mr. Agyemang-Manu noted.
