Ghana’s confirmed COVID-19 cases jumped to 566 with 158 additional cases recorded, the Ghana Health Service (GHS) said late Sunday.
The authorities attributed the rapid jump in the number of confirmed cases to the measures of detection instituted through enhanced contact tracing and testing across the country.
In all, Ghanaian health authorities have tested 37,954 persons, with 566 turning out positive, said the release.
Out of the total number of cases, eight of them have passed away, while four of them have successfully recovered and tested negative for the virus.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo announced earlier on Sunday the extension of the ban on public gatherings across the country. Enditem
