The number of the new coronavirus infections in Ghana has increased to 5,530 with 122 new cases confirmed, said the Ghana Health Service (GHS) on Thursday.
Disclosing this at the regular COVID-19 briefing here, the head of public health at the GHS, Badu Sarkodie said all the new cases came from the 13 regions that have been hit by the pandemic.
He said the number of recovered cases has also reached 674, with 160 new recoveries as of Wednesday.
On voluntary testing, Sarkodie said Ghana did not have the capacity at the moment and that it would put enormous pressure on existing testing laboratories.
The Minister for Health Kwaku Agyemang-Manu urged Ghanaians to help reduce the rate of transmission, especially community infections, by adhering to the prevention protocols.
