Play: PM Express discusses health system to withstand the third wave of Covid-19


Tonight on PM Express, host, Evans Mensah and his Ghana Health Service (GHS) panelists, Dr Patrick Kuma-Aboagye, Virologist at the Kumasi Center for Collaborative Research, Dr Michael Owusu, Immunologist Dr Yaw Bediako and CDD Health fellow, Kwame Asiedu Sarpong discussed the country’s preparedness to deal with a possible third wave of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The concern comes at a time when the Ghana Medical Association (GMA) has warned that intensive care units in Accra’s major hospitals are becoming overstretched as the country faces a surge in Covid-19 cases.

Many, including Global Health Expert from the Kumasi Center for Collaborative Research (KCCR), Dr. John Amuasi, believe that the occurrence of a third wave of the deadly Covid-19 pandemic in Ghana is inevitable.

Such projections have been attributed to the increase in Covid-19 cases registered in the country.

Meanwhile, the Ghana Health Service (GHS) has revealed in its latest update that a total of 382 new cases were reported as of July 14.

The agency added that the number of active cases in Ghana stands at 2,858, with the death toll rising to 812.

While 98,817 cases have been confirmed, 95,147 individuals have recovered and been discharged from health facilities.
