Suspected cases of coronavirus also known as COVID-19 have tested negative, Ghanian Health Minister Kwaku Agyeman-Manu said. As many as 40 suspected coronavirus cases have been tested in Ghana.
The minister said the country had strengthened its prevention measures in line with World Health Organizations recommendations for member states to prepare and prevent the further international spread of the outbreak.
He added that the West African country was not relying on a common-sense approach, but on expert advice in all the efforts to prevent the disease from entering Ghana.
The recent death of a Ghanaian returnee from Germany has aroused some speculation that the Ghanaian might be infected with the virus, but the case was later tested negative.
The director for public health Badu Sarkodie said that the death was not COVID-19-related, although the actual cause is yet to be established.
