The Ghana Medical Association (GMA) has outlined a number of factors that have the potential to significantly shoot up the country’s COVID-19 case count.
These range from inadequate personal protective equipment, shortage of essential drugs, delay in releasing test results and reopening of schools as well as the ongoing nationwide distribution of National Identification cards and the voter registration exercise.
The Association made the observation in a statement issued on Tuesday, June 30, 2020, after “extensive review and deliberation” by its National Executive Council on the nation’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic and especially, the management of cases at the various holding centres.
Ghana has recorded 17,741 cases with 13,268 recoveries and 112 deaths as of Tuesday, June 30, according to the Ghana Health Service.
