The country’s coronavirus case count continues to rise after hitting the 10,000-mark last Tuesday.

The latest update from the Ghana Health Service (GHS) has seen 157 new infections recorded.

This brings the total cumulative number of confirmed cases to 10,358 after almost three months since the first two cases were recorded in the country.

The disease has since spread nationwide as all 16 regions have recorded at least a case.

Recoveries over the past few days have not been impressive as only 69 recovered from the latest update by GHS.

There were no new deaths, fortunately, keeping the number at 48.

As a result, the country has 6,486 active cases being treated and managed.

Ten are in critical conditions, four of whom are on ventilators, while 14 are said to be in “severe” conditions.

The Greater Accra Region continues to lead the pack in the regional breakdown with a total of 6,642 cases so far.

There are reports that treatment centres in the Region are getting overwhelmed by the number of cases being admitted.

The Ashanti Region follows with 1,799 cases.
