The Central Regional Public Health Director in charge of COVID-19, Kwabena Sarpong, has revealed that all 40 cases suspected coronavirus cases in the region proved to be negative.
Speaking on Cape Coast-based Darling FM, Mr Sarpong said the samples that were taken to the Noguchi Memorial Research Centre for testing came out negative.
This means that the Central Region is yet to record any case of the disease which is fast spreading in Ghana.
Ghana has currently recorded 161 cases of the disease with 3 recoveries and five deaths.
As of 31 March 2020, the Ghana Health Service said an additional thirty-one (31) confirmed cases have significantly improved with no symptoms and have been discharged from admission for home care pending repetition of laboratory tests.
This adds to the 18 that were earlier being managed from home and bring the number of cases on home care to forty-nine (49).
Processes for enhanced contact-tracing and laboratory testing have been initiated, the GHS said, adding: “A total of 1,185 contacts have been identified and are being followed up”.
