Prez Nana Addo
President Nana Akufo-Addo has described as “tragic”, the death of over 40 people in the northern parts of Ghana from CSM.
“The recent, tragic CSM outbreak, with over forty (40) deaths, has reaffirmed the need for ready access to such infectious disease control centres, even though, in our time, nobody should die of the disease”, the President said on Sunday, 26 April 2020 when he addressed Ghanaians on the coronavirus situation.
He said: “Early reporting is what is required, and I implore everybody to heed this call”.
So far, about 400 CMS cases have been confirmed in the northern parts of Ghana with the 40 deaths being from the 258 confirmed cases in the Upper West Region.
Some deaths have also been reported in the Upper East.
