Also, in the latest update, Ghana's total number of COVID-19 patients have risen from 5,530 to 5,638 and sadly the number of people who have lost their lives has also increased by four.
Over the past few weeks, the COVID-19 cases in Ghana have increased very rapidly but the Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah explains that this is due to the enhanced testing that is being carried out in Ghana.
Comparatively, other countries depend mainly on routine surveillance, which is the act of testing individuals who report to medical facilities without going to hunt for suspected patients.
In another interesting report, AY Poyoo, an underground rapper who calls himself the Face of Ghana Rap has shot to fame within just two weeks of working hard to appear in the limelight.
The rapper who doubles as a comedian released a number of music videos portraying a rural setting in Ghana with rib-cracking lines that were loved by many.
As his videos started to gain traction online, the rapper was invited to popular media houses including Adom TV and GHOne TV, which have added to his fame.
