Ghana has recorded 198 new COVID-19 infections according to the Ghana Health Service (GHS).

This brings the country’s number of active cases to 1,156 as of November 5, 2020.

Out of this number, four persons are in critical condition, 11 severe in conditions, and two others on ventilators, says GHS.

So far, 49,202 persons have contracted the novel coronavirus with 47,726 recoveries/discharges.

No new deaths have been recorded leaving the figure at 320.

Meanwhile, President Nana Akufo-Addo has called for stricter adherence to COVID-19 safety protocols as the declining number of active cases have seen a spike lately.

He warned against the shunning of safety directives such as wearing face masks and practicing good personal hygiene.

This follows the recent increase in daily infections in the country after the previous numbers were reducing.

Speaking in his 19th address to the nation on measures to deal with the global pandemic, the President entreated the observance of safety directives stated by the Ghana Health Service (GES).

“It is very clear that the more we adhere to COVID-19 safety protocols the quicker we defeat the virus,” he advised.
