The Ghana Health Service (GHS) has disclosed that seven more persons infected with the Omicron variant of Covid-19 have been identified in the country. This brings the total number of cases to 41.
Director-General of the Ghana Health Service (GHS), Dr. Patrick Kuma-Aboagye, who disclosed this on Sunday, during The Probe, said the cases were detected after community testing was conducted following the 34 cases that were initially recorded at the Kotoka International Airport.
“We saw the first of about 34 cases that were recorded at the airport. At the time, we had sequenced about 66 community samples and they were all negative” but after a second batch of about 44 tests was conducted, seven more cases were detected,” he said.
He noted, however, that the dominant variant in our communities remains the delta variant.
