The number of people infected with the new coronavirus in Ghana has increased to 6,964, with 156 more cases confirmed as of Tuesday morning, the Ghana Health Service (GHS) said.

The Director-General of the GHS Patrick Kuma-Aboagye said 27 more infected people under treatment had recovered, increasing the number of recoveries to 2,097, while the number of deaths remains at 32.

“There are 15 severe cases, but they are not critical, so there is none on ventilators,” he said during the bi-weekly COVID-19 press briefing on Tuesday, adding that the country has so far carried out 202,000 tests.

Ghanaian citizens and residents are required to wear face masks whenever they go out of their homes, and before entering public places and institutions, to prevent the spread of the pandemic. Enditem
