41 cases of Omicron detected in Ghana – GHS

The Ghana Health Service (GHS) has identified that, seven more persons have been infected with the Omicron variant of Covid-19 in the country making a total number of 41 cases.

According to Dr Patrick Kuma-Aboagye, Director-General of the Ghana Health Service (GHS), the cases were detected after community testing was conducted following the 34 cases that were initially recorded at the Kotoka International Airport.

“We saw the first of about 34 cases that were recorded at the airport. At the time, we had sequenced about 66 community samples and they were all negative” but after the second batch of about 44 tests was conducted, seven more cases were detected.”

Due to the fast spread of the virus, the Ghana Health Service (GHS) highlighted some measures indicating that, all persons 18 years and above arriving in Ghana from December 12 must provide proof of full vaccination, but all unvaccinated Ghanaians and residents who are currently outside the country and intend to return within 14 days from the midnight of December 12, 2021 (which has now been extended to December 14) are exempted.
