Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
A total of four new cases of the deadly coronavirus otherwise known as COVID-19 have been confirmed in Ghana, sending the total number of confirmed cases to 136.
According to the situation updated sighted by YEN.com.gh on the official website of the Ghana Health Service, out of the 136, 78 were from the mandatory quarantine whilst routine surveillance contributed 58.
Previously, the total number of infected people from the mandatory quarantine was the same 78 which implies that all the new cases were added from the routine surveillance in the country.

Doing the maths on the figures above reveals that a total of three people have passed in Ghana from the 136 total confirmed cases which sent the resulting cases to 133.
Out of the 133, one person has recovered in Ghana, which means the total number of people in the country who have been confirmed to live with the deadly coronavirus is now 132.
It is hoped that the gentle rise in cases would be a sign of Ghana's initiation of flatting the curve, which would mean that the total number of cases would start to drop soon.
In other news, Daasebre Akuamoah Agyapong II, Kwahuhene and President of the Kwahu-Traditional Council has ordered for the entire Kwahu township to be on a 'lockdown' of a sort.
This has been necessitated in the wake of the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic in Ghana as the disease is on a continual rise in different parts of the country.
In a statement sighted by YEN.com.gh that was released by the traditional leaders at Kwahu under the auspices of the Ministry of Chieftaincy and Religious Affairs, it was clearly stated that everyone currently outside Kwahu and planning to return should cancel the trip.
