The Flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC), John Dramani Mahama has made a strong case for the country to refocus on telehealth to open up access to quality healthcare.

In a Facebook post hours ago, the former leader re-echoed that the outbreak of Covid-19 has demonstrated yet again that a strong healthcare system is vital for any country.

“We have to develop telemedicine tools to support the construction and provision of modern and well-equipped health facilities across the country. This will make it easier for every Ghanaian to access quality healthcare. Together, we will build a future #Ghana,” he said.

His suggestion comes on the heels of the spike in cases of the Coronavirus pandemic in the country.

220 new cases of COVID-19 have been recorded in Ghana pushing the country's case count to 6,486 from 6,269 as of the last update by the Ghana Health Service on Wednesday.

The number of recoveries has also jumped to 1,951 from 1,898 while the death toll remains at 31.
