Ghana's confirmed coronavirus cases have lept to a total of 204 as of the afternoon of Thursday, April 2, 2020.
This was confirmed by the Disease Surveillance Department of the Ghana Health Service (GHS).
This means that nine more cases have been recorded since the last update of 195 three days ago.
According to the GHS, all nine new cases were confirmed in the Greater Accra Region.
Four of the cases are said to have no travel history and no confirmed contacts.
The other four also have no travel history but have been in touch with confirmed contacts.
The remaining one of the 9 patients is said to have travelled into Ghana from Benin in the last 14 days.
So far, all the coronavirus cases have been confirmed only in the Greater Accra, Ashanti, (Northern, Upper West, and Eastern) Regions.
The GHS also disclosed that most of the cases were reported from the routine/enhanced surveillance activities.
Also, cases from travellers to Ghana who are under mandatory quarantine stands at 89.
Meanwhile, a total of 31 coronavirus patients have recovered, as confirmed by the Health Minister and published by YEN.com.gh.
These 31 people have been discharged and are under strict monitoring in their own homes.
The minister revealed in a report monitored by YEN.com.gh on TV3 that the 31 would be allowed to go out after some time.
Also, the lockdown of some parts of Greater Accra, the Ashanti Regions, and Kasoa, is still being observed.
The measure was announced by President Akufo-Addo as a way to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus.
