The Director-General of the Ghana Health Service (GHS), Dr. Patrick Kuma-Aboagye, has revealed that only 4 out of the 16 regions are currently battling with Covid-19 active cases.

The four are; Upper East, Bono, Ashanti and Greater Accra regions.

“The majority of the cases are in the Greater Accra Region,” he said.
