Delta variant taken over local transmission in Ghana – Awandare

Professor Gordon Awandare, the Director of West African Center for Cell Biology of Infectious Pathogens (WACCBIP), has stated that the current Covid-19 data in Ghana shows that the delta variant has taken over local transmission in Ghana.

He described this as an inevitable development that has occurred.

The recoveries stand at 97,970.

In a tweet, Professor Awandare said “Our data now suggest the inevitable has occurred, delta variant has taken over local transmission in Ghana.

“Remarkably, it appears the alpha variant was already being replaced by B.1.1.318 before delta arrived. Will be interesting to see how B.1.1.318 fares with delta.”
