Ghana has recorded more than 518 deaths from COVID-19 according to the latest update from the Ghana Health Service.
The country has also recorded 771 new COVID-19 cases, bringing the country’s active case count to 7,754.
The Greater Accra region leads with the highest number of active cases representing 4,027.
The Ashanti region has the second highest number with 1,452 active cases, followed by the western region with 549 cases.
The Central, Volta, and Eastern regions also have 307, 295, and 284 active cases, respectively.
Lack of adherence to COVID-19 safety protocols has been largely cited by the increase in COVID-19 cases in Ghana.
President Nana Akufo-Addo recently directed the Inspector General of Police to ensure that Ghanaians abide by the directive on wearing nasal masks in an attempt to slow the spread of the virus.
She also reintroduced restrictions on social and other gatherings.
