As of July 6, Ghana had recorded 1,982 active cases of coronavirus of which 23 were in a severe state and 11 others in critical condition, according to the Ghana Health Service website.

The number had increased by 89 cases from the previous day, July 5, where the active cases stood at 1,893.

Since the advent of the virus, Ghana has recorded 97,130 cases of which 94,349 have recovered and discharged.

799 people have since reportedly died from the virus.

The sharp increase in daily active cases has become a matter of concern for some health analysts who claim Ghana might soon be experiencing a third wave of the Covid-19 virus.

Their concerns are further exacerbated by the community spread of the Delta variant of the Covid-19 virus which has become infamous for being responsible for the carnage in India and other countries.

With only 852,047 people vaccinated in the country, there’s concern the population is not prepared for a possible third wave.

This evening on The Probe, host, Emefa Apawu, will be joined by the Presidential advisor on health, Dr. Anthony Nsiah Asare as they discuss what may have triggered a possible third wave in the country.

They will also be discussing what has become of Ghana’s quest to vaccinate 20 million people by the close of the year in order to achieve herd immunity, and how the country is preparing itself to combat the Covid-19 Delta variant.

The Probe will air at 8 pm, and viewers are encouraged to send their questions to 054-010-9009.
