Ten more COVID-19 deaths have been recorded in Ghana, sending the country’s total fatal cases from 85 to 95.
Addressing the press on Tuesday, June 23, 2020, the Ghana Health Service said recoveries have increased to 10,907.
The Director-General of the Ghana Health Service (GHS) Dr. Patrick Kuma-Aboagye also said Ghana's confirmed cases has also risen to 14,568.
“We have so far following the review recorded 95 deaths. Currently, we have 24 severe cases across the country and six cases are critical and five persons are currently on ventilators.
"We have a total of 414 new cases reported from 25 districts across the country and three regions. Which is that about 13 regions did not record any new case yesterday,” he said.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the recent astronomical increase in recoveries in COVID-19 patients as indicated by the Ghana Health Service got a lot of tongues wagging demanding an explanation as to why the figures had shot up.
It would be recalled that as of Friday, June 19, 2020, the number of recoveries was less than 5,000 per statistics from the Ghana Health Service.
Speaking at the press briefing, the Director-General of the Ghana Health Service, Dr Patrick Aboagye, indicated that those who are not showing any sign of the disease after their initial positive test would be discharged without the second and third test.
This decision was taken by the government after the World Health Organisation released a guideline indicating persons with little or no symptoms of the virus within 10-14 days be discharged.
