Ghana’s recovery cases of the dreaded coronavirus has increased astronomically in a few days and many Ghanaians have been asking why the instant miracle.
Well, per the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) guidelines as at 12th January 2020, a patient can be declared recovered if they have no symptoms or does not have the capability to infect others.
In lieu of this, Ghana’s scientific team took extra precautions by making sure that a patient has two consecutive negative tests before they are declared as having recovered.
However, the new guidelines set by the WHO as of 27th May 2020, stipulates that after 10 to 14 days a person with no symptoms is unlikely to infect others with the virus even if the person continues to test positive.
This as a result, informed the Ghana Health Service’s decision to declare an additional 5664 patients as recovered patients making it a total of 10074 as of June 20 2020 who have been asked to go home.
The country previously had a total number of 12590 cases with a death toll of 66 and 4410 recoveries as at 13th June 2020.
