Ghana records 11,964 coronavirus cases

Ghana has recorded 11,964 cases of the novel Coronavirus cases less than 24-hours after the last update by the Ghana Health Service.

This was announced by the president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, during his 11th televised update to the nation on Sunday, May 14, 2020.

Akufo-Addo said, “Understandably, much focus has been placed on the rise in the total number of confirmed cases. As at midnight of 13th June, the total number of positives, cumulatively, stands at 11,964, out of the 254,331, tests conducted.”

He indicated that 4,258 patients had fully recovered and have been discharged.

The President pointed out that, “with 54 deaths currently reported by the Ghana Health Service thus far in Ghana, the ratio of deaths to positive cases stands at 0.4%, compared to the global average of 5.5%, and the African average of 2.6%.”

“The number of severe and critically ill also continues to below. I am relating all these figures not to engender any false, feel-good factor, but as statements of fact, that must provide the context for us, when we examine our figures.

“If, indeed, we are to be guided by the data, then we must look at the data in all its ramifications, not just one particular aspect of them. That is the proper way to do justice to the data,” Akufo-Addo added.
