Fifteen new deaths have also been recorded increasing our death toll to 457.

The Ghana Health Service at a press briefing last week announced that the new Covid-19 variants from the United Kingdom (UK) are spreading faster and widely among the Ghanaian population, with higher disease burden.
It warned that the trend of the spread of the UK variants could overtake the traditional one in existence in Ghanaian communities if people fail to strictly observe the preventive and safety protocols put in place by the government.
