The ministry of communication has re-launched the COVID-19 tracker months after it was first launched in Ghana.
The Minister of Communications, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, said her outfit decided to re-launch the app because it had been updated and its efficiency improved.
Speaking at the re-launch of the GH COVID-19 tracker App, she said the re-launching of the app had become necessary following the reopening of the airport.
The minister said the updated tracker would enable healthcare staff to contact COVID-19 patients and track suspected cases, as well as identify COVID-19 hotpots.
“Under this re-launch platform, healthcare staff will be able to contact patients and track the movements of COVID-19 live cases,” she said.
She added that the new platform is accessible to everyone and not only smartphone users.
The app was first launched on April 13, 2020 by the Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, to help boost government’s fight against the COVID-19 pandemic in Ghana.

According to him, the woman left after he was reduced to nothing financially because the NPP lost the 1992 elections.
Agyapong explained that he spent all the money he had on the NPP, hoping that he would get something back if the party should win power, however, his expectations were not met.
