Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, the Minister for Information

The Minister for Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has revealed that Ghana would have reported “only 292 cases by now” if the government hadn’t taken strict measures to control and prevent further spread of Coronavirus.

The Government of Ghana, led by President Akufo-Addo employed strict measures such as mandatory quarantine, closure of borders, enhanced contact tracing and testing to curtail the spread of the disease.

The country, as at April 12, 2020, confirmed 556 Coronavirus cases including 8 deaths and 4 recoveries, since the first cases were reported in March.

In a tweet this morning, the Minister stated that “the mix of measures to aggressively go in search of it [Coronavirus] while limiting importation is the reason for which we have found 274 more cases.”

“Had we not adopted this approach, the 274 extra will be with us potentially continuously spreading the virus,” Kojo Oppong Nkrumah added.

He also “encouraged all persons to comply with the measures and spread more knowledge and facts to help us all.”
