Covid-19 cases in Ghana have hit nine. This was disclosed by President Nana Akufo-Addo today, Thursday, March 19, 2020.
The President said this during a Presidential Prayer Breakfast Meeting with Christian leaders in Ghana at the Jubilee House.
“…We also learned, sadly on Wednesday, that 3 Ghanaians living abroad had lost their lives as a result. With 9 confirmed cases of infections, we might as well count ourselves lucky as one of the countries least hit by the Coronavirus,” he added.
As of Wednesday, March 18, the cases were seven but the Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah took to social media site, Twitter to explain that the two extra cases were recorded overnight.
“Unfortunately we have confirmed two more cases overnight. Ghana’s case count is now at 9. Health services are still managing all suspected and confirmed cases well,” he added.
It is however unclear whether the additional cases were imported just like the other seven or a community spread.
