Ghana’s confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus has now risen to 24.
“Twenty-three of the confirmed cases are receiving treatment in isolation and one of the cases who had an underlying chronic pulmonary condition prior to having COVID-19 died [on Saturday, March 21],” the Ghana Health Service said in an update.
The remaining 23 infected persons “are being managed in isolation, and are doing well on treatment,” the service added.
The service is yet to give a geographical breakdown of the three new cases.
So far, most of the cases have been detected in the Greater Accra Region.
Among the confirmed cases in Ghana, 17 are Ghanaian and seven are foreign nationals from Norway, Lebanon, China, France and the UK.
