At Kotoka International Airport in Accra, Ghana, on January 30, 2020, health workers are waiting to screen travelers for signs of the corona virus.
Ghana’s total number of
coronavirus cases is 152, with routine surveillance, mandatory quarantine in Tamale, and mandatory quarantine in Accra.
According to a report by YEN.com.gh on the official website of the Ghanaian
health service, the 10 reported cases were imported into Tamale in the northern region of Ghana.
It is confirmed that the 10 cases were Guinean residents who traveled to Ghana via Burkina Faso and Togo and were selected according to an intelligence report.
See Ministry of Health contribution below:
The eleventh case was registered in Kumasi in the Ashanti region, bringing the total number of confirmed cases in Ghana to 152 with five deaths to date.
Just one day earlier, Ghana reported a total of 141 confirmed cases of the novel corona virus, only one of which came from an imported source after a long time without any imported cases.
The number of imported cases ended after President Nana Akufo-Addo ordered on the night of March 21, 2020 that all borders with Ghana should be closed by land and air.
It appears that the 10 people who were confirmed to have the disease in the northern region came from unapproved means for which they had to be picked up quickly.
