The Disease Surveillance Department of the Ghana Health Service has confirmed that 31 out of the total number of 152 coronavirus patients have been discharged.
They are said to be responding to treatment from home because they responded well to treatment and are on their way to fully recover.
Yesterday, Monday, March 30, 2020, just one case of coronavirus was confirmed.
This involved a doctor with the LEKMA Hospital in Teshie, Accra.
Meanwhile, parts of Accra, Kasoa, and Kumasi are observing a lockdown for two weeks at the orders of President Akufo-Addo.
The measure is to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus which has plagued Ghana and almost all parts of the world.
Security agencies have been deployed to various areas to ensure that the lockdown rules are enforced.
In an earlier report by YEN.com.gh, a statement by the police stated that the security men - the military and police, have been trained to be highly professional in their dealings with the public during the lockdown period.
In other news, the president of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), Bice Osei Kuffour, has trended in the news after his father was diagnosed with coronavirus leading to his death.
Obour allegedly did not inform the health officers at Ridge about his father's travel history, therefore, without any suspicion, he was admitted into the emergency ward.
The father was said to be treated of malaria, but the condition worsened until further tests proved that he had coronavirus.
The emergency ward was therefore shut down for disinfection, while about 20 health officers who took care of Obour's father were asked to isolate themselves.
