The Presidential advisor on health, Dr. Anthony Nsiah Asare has hinted that, the Country may go to another lockdown if the number of COVID-19 cases in Ghana keeps increasing.
Speaking to Sara Paku of Tv3, Dr. Nsiah Asare stated that, all options are available for the Government including a lockdown if the situation continues.
He further stated that, a third wave of COVID-19 in Ghana is imminent.
His comments follows an upsurge in the number of new cases which has pushed the active cases to over 3, 000 for the past two Weeks.
The number of COVID-19 related deaths has also increased to 815.
This will not be the first time Ghana will be experiencing a lockdown as the Country went in to a two Week lockdown in between March and April 2020 when the Virus hit the Country.
Health experts have attributed the upsurge in the number of COVID-19 cases to the emergence of the new Delta strain which is said to be more dangerous than the first strain.
Meanwhile, the Ghana Health Service has indicated that, the Country will receive a concinement of Johnson and Johnson vaccine in August to enable more people take the vaccine.
