GHS Warns Ghanaians Of High-Risk 3rd Wave Of Covid-19 Infection In The Country
The Ghana Health Service has warned of a high risk of the severe third wave of COVID-19 infections across the country raising concerns of serious implications for public health.
According to Service, this is a result of a sharp rise in cases similar to the curve in the early days of the pandemic.
Ghana is currently battling with an active case count of 4983 with 832 deaths. The latest surge in figures according to the Ghana Health Service is due to the increasing disregard for COVID 19 safety protocols.
The Director-General of the Ghana Health Service, Dr. Patrick Kum Aboagye has been shedding more light on the measures being taken to fight the pandemic while outlining the schedule for the arrival of new batches of the vaccines.
Meanwhile, the Health Service is also denying rumors that safety checks at the Kotoka International Airport have been compromised.
In a viral video on social media, a woman was seen over the weekend impugning the integrity of the testing regime at the airport.
However the Head of Surveillance at the Ghana Health Service, Dr. Dennis Laryea has denied the claims and asked the public to disregard such assertions.
