Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Ghana's total cases of coronavirus now stand at 152 with break downs into Routine Surveillance, Mandatory Quarantine in Tamale and Mandatory Quarantine in Accra.
According to a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on the official website of the Ghana Health Service, 10 cases were reported in Tamale, in the Northern Region of Ghana, and were all imported.
It is confirmed that the 10 cases were Guinean residents who travelled through Burkina Faso and Togo to Ghana and were picked following intelligence report.
See post by Ministry of Health below:
The eleventh case was recorded in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region, sending Ghana’s total number of confirmed cases to 152 with five deaths so far.
Just a day earlier, Ghana reported a total of 141 confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus with only one coming from an imported source after a long while of no imported cases.
The number of imported cases ceased after president Nana Akufo-Addo ordered on the night of March 21, 2020, that all borders to Ghana, both by land and air should be closed.
It appears that the 10 persons who have been confirmed with the disease in the Northern Region came through some unapproved means, for which they had to be picked up quickly.
In other news, Asante Kotoko wonder-kid Mathew Anim Cudjoe has donated health products and protective equipment such as hand sanitizers, gloves and more to the Civil Service Polyclinic in Accra to help combat the coronavirus pandemic.
In a post sighted by YEN.com.gh on the official Twitter handle of Ghana Sports Facts, it was stated categorically that the 16-year-old wonderboy made the massive donation in the company of his manager Samuel Anim Addo.
The donation by the rising football star has been very crucial especially at the moment that several health facilities have complained of lack of PPEs to help them in the fight against coronavirus.
