Ghanaian health officials on Saturday said over 10,000 persons infected with the coronavirus have now recovered.

The significant number of recoveries means the country now has only a little over 3,000 active cases of the virus out of almost 14,000 infections.

85 persons have so far been confirmed to have died from the virus, according to latest statistics released by health officials.

Ghana however continues to records high cases of the virus with infections reportedly surging within communities.

This week, health officials came under scrutiny as civil society groups and other citizens accuse them of massaging some aspects of the country’s Covid-19 data.

The country’s health officials are said to be under-reporting data especially the number of deaths across the country from the virus.

Civil society group OccupyGhana warned that “If the public suspects under reporting etc, there will be a loss of trust in the reporting system and that will have consequences that will influence public behavioural responses.”

Ghana’s Health Service however denied the claim of under-reporting figures with its officials saying they had to validate every figure before reporting it publicly.
