One more person has died of coronavirus in Ghana, raising the total number of deaths from 34 to 35.
This was announced by the Head of Public Health of the Ghana Health Service, Dr Badu Sarkodie, on The Key Points on TV3/3FM on Saturday, May 30.
The death involved a 70-year-old woman, who had heart conditions.
“She had hypertension earlier, she was re-assessed and there were few signs and symptoms of perspiration and based on that consideration, she was made to test for Covid-19.
“And after her death, few days later the result came out positive.”
Dr Sarkodie also mentioned that the total number of cases has risen from the last count of 7,616 to 7,768 with a total of 20 in critical conditions.
On a brighter light, 2,540 have recovered from the virus, leaving the active cases at 5,193.
This comes a day prior to heightened expectations about measures taken by the government to ease some of the restrictions put in place to curb the spread of the virus.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is expected to address the nation on Sunday, May 31 on the way-forward.
Dr Sarkodie said the data will be provided by the GHS for a pragmatic decision to be taken by government but he expects a “welcome face approach” to it.
