Three hundred and ninety people have tested positive for the novel coronavirus sending Ghana’s total confirmed cases to 17, 741.

There has been no new deaths according to the Ghana Health Service (GHS).

With the ongoing voters’ registration exercise, some critics say, it is going to be the avenue to spread the disease.

But in an address at a press briefing, Director General of the Ghana Health Service, Dr Patrick Kuma-Aboagye said his outfit has deployed health practitioners to ensure the adherence to the safety protocols at the registration centres.

“We are working with the EC [Electoral Commission] as far as the registration is concerned. We are working with them to ensure that the process will be done in a way that will reduce contamination.”
