Ghana has recorded 403 more cases of the novel coronavirus or COVID-19, sending the total number of confirmed cases to 2,074 from the previous 1,671 recorded.
According to the official website of the Ghana Health Service, the total number of recoveries, as well as deaths, have also changed to 212 and 17 respectively.
88% of all the cases reported have not had any travel history as only 12% have been traced to some evidence of travel.
Also, 62% of the 2,074 are male whilst only 38% are female but no reason has been provided for this rather interesting observation so far.
Greater Accra Region now leads the pack with 1,795 confirmed cases of the coronavirus and is followed by the Ashanti and Eastern Regions with 99 and 70 respectively.
The rest are Central Region - 21, Oti Region - 19, Upper East Region - 19, Volta Region - 16, Northern Region - 13, Upper West Region - 10, Western Region - 9, North-East Region - 2 and Western North Region - 1.
Thankfully, Savannah Region, Bono Region, Ahafo Region and Bono East Region have still not recorded any case.
In another report, the leader of the popular Ghanaian pallbearing group that has gone viral around the world has granted an interview with the very first journalist that made them famous.
In a video sighted by YEN.com.gh, the BBC journalist narrates how he discovered and interviewed the dancing pallbearers only for them to become a world sensation after years.
The two men had a conversation at the Osu Cemetery whilst they sat tombs apart in accordance with strict social distancing protocols.
