Ghana will review the existing COVID-19 measures to prevent further outbreaks in the wake of a change in the pandemic’s global situation.
Some countries around the world have implemented a variety of stringent policies to combat the Coronavirus pandemic.
The changing global situation of COVID-19, particularly the reported increase in new cases in China and other countries, as well as Ghana’s relatively low vaccine coverage, pose a significant risk of importation and a new wave of COVID-19 infection in the country.
Over the last three months, there has been a decrease and sustained low level of COVID-19 cases in Ghana.
As of December 16, 2022, the GHS had recorded four active cases of the virus in Ghana.
The COVID-19 virus has been around for three years, and while the numbers in Ghana are down, they are up in some other countries.
When the pandemic will end is unknown.
