Ghana currently has 23 active coronavirus cases.
According to the Ghana Health Service, all 23 are in isolation and are receiving treatment.
President Akufo-Addo has also told us that about 8 of the patients have been discharged and are currently receiving treatment at home though they have not been declared coronavirus free yet.
One of the 23 people being treated for coronavirus is Simeon Teye Narteh.
Simeon told a JOYFM journalist that he expects to be declared coronavirus free this week as he has regained his strength and is relatively doing well.
Yesterday, the Ghana Health Service said in a statement that “a total of 315 suspected cases have been tested for COVID-19 by Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research (NMIMR) and Kumasi Centre for Collaborative Research (KCCR).”
“Among the confirmed cases, seventeen (17) are of Ghanaian nationality and seven (7) other nationals namely: Norway, Lebanon, China, France, UK,” the statement continued.
Though this week is crucial for the country to determine how extensive the community spread of the virus is, a possible full recovery by Simeon is also a piece of positive news to look out for.
