COVID-19 records in Ghana show a plateau of the active cases since February 1, 2021.
“We are still at a very high point” albeit declining case numbers, Director-General of the GHS, Dr Patrick Kuma-Aboagye, told a Press conference on Friday, February, 19, 2021,
“There has been a decline compared to what we had a week or two ago. The active cases are not increasing but high at a stagnant position.”
“Active cases rose to the highest point we’ve never seen before… over 8000. In the last week or two that adherence to protocol, the use of mask increased, we have seen a plateauing and now a decline. If we continue, we can see further decline.
“Today we are reporting a decline in our active cases…but as it is, we are still at a very high point. We have never reached 7000 before,” he said.
At least 53 percent of the active cases are concentrated in the Greater Accra Region, with the Ashanti and Western Regions recording 12 and 6.2 per cent of active cases respectively.
Although all the 16 regions have active cases, as at February 16, four regions had not reported any new cases.
