Despite Ghana having declared today as a national day of prayer and fasting, Ghana’s coronavirus cases have jumped to 68 after 11 more persons who were mandatorily quarantined by the government tested positive.
According to the Ghana Health Service, “The sudden spike in case incidence is as a result of the mandatory quarantine and compulsory testing for all travellers entering Ghana, as directed by the president.
“Overall, 30 of the 68 cases have been reported in the general population with the remaining 38 cases among persons currently under mandatory quarantine. As of 24 March, total of 1,030 persons are under mandatory quarantine; samples from 863 of them have been tested and 38 confirmed positive.”
