The Ghana Health Service (GHS) is concerned about the spate of children between 0 to 15 years testing positive for Covid-19 in the Greater Accra Region.
According to the Service, data available indicates that infection in children has increased from 18 percent to 20 percent in June.
Ghana currently has a total of 1,308 active cases of the virus as of June 18, 2022, with 1,448 deaths and 218 new cases.
Addressing the press, the Director-General of the Service, Dr. Patrick Kuma Aboagye, said Ghanaians must find ways to protect children since they have not been approved to get vaccinated.
“Something has to be done as far as the protection of children is concerned because they are also not vaccinated to give them the protection they need,” he said.
In total, Ghana has recorded 164,541 cases with 1,448 deaths.
Ghana has also administered 16,752,032 doses of the coronavirus vaccine.
GHS has said there are 7.2 million people fully vaccinated, representing 22 percent of the population.
Over 1 million people have received booster shots of the vaccine and about 10 million people have received at least one dose of the vaccine.
