When it comes to the regional distribution, the Greater Accra still leads the pack but now with 6,888 cases and the Ashanti Region chases after it with 1,989.

Now, also, no region is free from COVID-19 as Savannah, Bono and Ahafo Regions have all recorded one case each of the coronavirus.

It is hoped that Ghana's number would peak soon and then start to decline so that the battle against the pandemic would be won forever.
