Ghana’s total COVID-19 cases have increased by 34 to 195, the Minister for Health Kwaku Agyemang-Manu said on Wednesday.

Although the minister did not give the specific details regarding the new cases, he said all the cases had been isolated and treated.

Three cities, namely Accra, Tema and Kumasi, in addition to Kasoa, a market community near the capital have been under partial lockdown since Monday, as the government intensifies efforts to contain a further spread of the virus.

Ghana has so far recorded five deaths from the recorded cases of COVID-19 in the country, after carrying out 4,560 tests.

The minister added that the security agencies were still searching for a COVID-19 patient who had escaped in Tamale on Monday.
