President Nana Addo Explains Why The Massive Increase Of Recovery Cases In Ghana


President Akufo-Addo says Ghana is following the new World Health Organisation (WHO) guidelines when it comes to discharging Covid-19 patients.

Speaking at his 12th address to the nation on measures to control the virus, he explained that previously as long as patients continue to test positive, scientifically, they were capable of infecting others.

Hence, the requirement for the two consecutive, negative tests before one is declared as having recovered.

However, President Akufo-Addo said, the new evidence states that a Covid-19 patient with no symptoms after 10 to 14 days is unlikely to transmit the virus to others even though they continue to test positive.

“After three weeks of analysing and studying this update and recommendation, and situating it in the Ghanaian context, in line with the admonition by WHO to Member States, this new patient discharge/recovery policy has now been adopted by Ghana, as have some countries in the European Union, Singapore, India, Malaysia, Hong Kong, and in Dubai.”
