The Ghana Health Service (GHS) has revealed that Ghana could record more cases of the novel coronavirus.
The Director of Public Health of the GHS, Dr Badu Sarkodie, said since the country does not have a strong health system, more cases could be recorded.
He said since the country's health systems were not strong enough, there is a potential risk to record more cases.
He made this known while speaking in an interview on Starr FM's Morning Starr on Wednesday, March 18, 2020.
