This figure indicates that over 5,000 persons have been discharged or allowed to home as they are no longer withing the danger zone.

YEN.com.gh has gathered that the over 5,000 recoveries are all not recoveries but rather those with little or not so obvious symptoms sent home to fully recover.

At a press briefing on Thursday, June 18, 2020, the Director-General of the Ghana Health Service indicated that Ghana's COVID-19 discharge policy has been reviewed in order to reduce the pressure on health facilities.

According to Dr. Patick Aboagye, the review would affect patients who were no more exhibiting severe symptoms of the virus.

He explained that the reviewed policy is in line with the guidelines laid down by the World Health organisations.
