The novel coronavirus cases in Ghana have risen to 195 according to the Health Minister, Kwaku Agyemang Manu.
This is up from 161 just yesterday, Tuesday.
Greater Accra Region has 174 of these cases, the Northern Region has 10, the Ashanti Region has nine, the Upper West Region has one and the Eastern Region also has one known case of the virus.
The Ghana Health Services will soon hit high-risk communities in the Ashanti region and the Ayawaso West Municipal Assembly (AWMA) with compulsory house-to-house testing of people suspected to be carrying the coronavirus.
Health authorities say the move has become necessary as these areas have been identified as one of the epic centers of the COVID-19 pandemic in Ghana.
