Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah

The Ministry of Information held a press briefing today to inform citizens on strategies employed by government to mitigate the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The presser was moderated by Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah and Director-General of the Ghana Health Service (GHS), Dr. Patrick Kuma-Aboagye.

Today’s presser comes at a time when the Ghana Medical Association (GMA) has admonished government to expand free and enhanced Covid-19 testing in the country to mitigate the rapid spread of the Covid-19 delta variant.

This follows the rise in Covid-19 cases.

As of July 30, the Ghana Health Service reported 6,276 active cases with 844 deaths.
