The Eastern region has now recorded 23 cases of the Corona virus after seven patients tested positive for the virus.
This information was announced by the regional health directorate.
These persons are under quarantine in the Lower Manya Krobo and 22 of them are Indians with one other being Ghanaian.
“On 10th April 2020, additional 7 positive results were received such that the total positive cases at AFCON camp B are 23,” a statement from the Eastern Regional Health Directorate said.
Indications are that there is some “heightened tension and anxiety at the camp” because the persons on quarantine are still not aware of the persons among them who are negative or positive.
The directorate also noted that “it is impossible to know what proportion of the 244 samples sent have been tested to yield the 22 positive results so far received.”
