One of the west African countries, Ghana has recorded the first case of Coronavirus in the country

Ghana has confirmed two cases of COVID-19 on March 12, 2020,

being the first cases to be reported in the country.

The Ministry of Health disclosed in a statement on Thursday.

The statement revealed that the two confirmed cases were received

at the same time from the Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research.

Africa region has so far been less badly hit by coronavirus than Europe or China.

Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Senegal, Cameroon, Togo, South Africa, Burkina Faso and

Democratic Republic of Congo have also registered cases of the deadly virus.

Ghana’s health ministry said its two cases were people who

had returned recently from Norway and Turkey.

“These are imported cases of COVID-19. Both patients are currently

being kept in isolation and are stable,” the ministry said in a statement.

More than 127,000 people have been infected globally and over 4,700

have died since the virus first emerged in China late last year.

Africa did not confirm its first coronavirus infection until Feb. 28 in Nigeria,

but experts warn that rising cases could test already fragile health systems
