The Ashanti Regional Health Directorate of the Ghana Health Service (GHS) has revealed that more women have tested positive for the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in the Ashanti Region than men.
The latest data is different from the national data which shows more men are getting infected than women.
According to the data, 52% of the confirmed cases in the Ashanti Region are women (representing 423) and 48% being men. The total number of infected people is 886.
A week ago in the Ashanti Region, the figures showed that more men had tested positive than women, but that position has changed in the last couple of days.
The majority of the reported cases are from Obuasi where more women have tested positive than men.
Out of the total number of infected people in the Ashanti Region, 30 of them have been identified as health workers, who according to the authorities, are doing well and responding to treatment.
According to Joy News, the said donation to Nana Obuo Nketiaa is to settle a dispute between her and the newly enstooled paramount chief of the area.
