The number of COVID-19 deaths in the country has increased sharply to 352 according to President Akufo-Addo.
Prior to his 22nd national update on the fight against the pandemic in Ghana, 5 more deaths and the tally was 346.
However, in his address on Sunday, the President indicated that the number of deaths is now 352.
"According to statistics from the Ghana Health Service, the considerable number of persons who are severely ill are, surprisingly, relatively youthful persons, with no previous underlying health conditions".
"Particularly worrying is the fact that the Ghana Health Service is recording, on the average, two hundred (200) new cases of COVID infections daily. The number of patients requiring hospitalisation and intensive care is rising. The number of severe cases, which stood at eighteen (18) a week ago, has increased sharply to one hundred and twenty (120). Two weeks ago, there was no critical case, we now have thirty-three (33) in our treatment facilities" the President said in his address.
Meanwhile, Ghana's active cases now stand at 1924.
