Meanwhile, a pharmacist and fellow at the Centre for Democratic Development (CDD) has challenged claims by the Ghana Health Service (GHS) that Ghana is at its peak of infections with regards to COVID-19.

According to the Kwame Sarpong Asiedu, Ghana’s cases are now spiking with an even more dangerous trend of infections which will not flatten anytime soon.

Speaking to Starr News Tuesday, the CDD fellow said there is more work to be done to get hold of the virus in the country.

“Until and when we are able to move the spread from polynomial, we are nowhere near the peak. The rate at which our cases are jumping does it look like we are approaching a peak? Look at the significant jumps over the last few days; I do not even think we should be having such conversations now. The acceleration is so huge,” the pharmacist warned.
