Ghana’s Covid-19 cases, just as it is reported in other jurisdictions, has skyrocketed this December.
Since December this year, Ghana has recorded over 90% increase in active COVID-19 cases.
Currently, Ghana is said to be averaging over 1,074 daily COVID- 19 cases, with 9584 active cases, as at December 28, 2021.
Over 1, 200 Ghanaians have succumbed to the dreadful virus.
This hike in cases, is partly attributed to the Omicron variant, which is considered highly transmissible.
Festive activities associated with the Christmas holidays is said to have increased the country’s active Covid-19 figures.
In the face of this risk, however, the Director of Public Health at the Ghana Health Service, Dr. Franklin Asiedu Bekoe, has assuaged the fears of the cases taking a crisis turn.
According to him, his outfit is better equipped, this year, to deal with hikes in cases.
He mentioned that, unlike previous years, Ghana now has a considerable number of treatment centers for managing and treating critical cases.
According to Dr. Bekoe, these centers are better equipped to help manage the rising numbers.
