The Head of the Virology Department of Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research, Professor William Kwabena Ampofo, says seven out of the 21 cases tested for coronavirus showed symptoms as outlined by the Ghana Health Service despite all proving negative.

He, therefore, called for vigilance and heightened effort as the disease is closer than probably thought.

For him, Ghana is safe for now but measures must be put in place to fight the disease in case of an outbreak.

He admitted that the symptoms of the coronavirus disease are hard to tell and they make the viral disease difficult to diagnose.

Prof Ampofo made this known at Media General’s thought-leadership and impact forum held on Tuesday, February 18.

It centred on the preparedness of Ghana in case of an outbreak of Covid-19.

It was themed: ‘Emerging Infectious Diseases And Their Effects on Public Health Management in Ghana’.
