President of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has revealed that the World Health Organization (WHO) has asked Ghana to share knowledge with African countries.
The president made the rather interesting revelation in his ninth address to the nation on the measures to be taken against the novel coronavirus, which was closely monitored by YEN.com.gh
According to Nana Addo, WHO actually reached out to Ghana and asked that the country's sample pooling experience be shared with other countries on the continent.
See post below:
It is indicated that Ghana is currently the country in Africa to have administered the most tests per million people by virtue of the special sample pooling procedure.
The report indicates that Ghana's knowledge would help the other countries also ramp up their testing capabilities, which is a crucial part in the combat against the novel coronavirus.
Although Ghana may not be out of the woods yet or even close to that stage, Nana Addo implies from the country's standing in Africa that Ghana is surely doing something right.
In a similar development, YEN.com.gh reported that Ghana's president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has listed 11 different local Ghanaian foods that can help the citizens in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
