Kofi Tonto, an official at the Public Affairs Department at the Embassy, revealed official figures they have gathered so far informs them that the number of Ghanaians who have died from the virus in the United States is 20.
“We do know of Ghanaians who have passed and we continue to gather data. Unfortunately, because of some health regulations you don’t get the data as to know whether this is Ghanaian or otherwise.
“What we rely on is people within the Ghanaian community informing us of folks who have been affected either by contracting the disease or folks who have unfortunately passed away.
“At our last count, we were about 20 people. This isn’t data from hospital, this is data based on what we gather from the various communities,” he revealed.
“The number I am referring to are persons or Ghanaians who have passed away through Covid-19 in New York and New Jersey,” Kofi Tonto added.
