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.

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.
