Some well-meaning citizens of Logba Tota, a community in the Afadjato South District of the Volta Region, have donated relief items to the various clans in the community to help stem the further spread of the deadly coronavirus.

The items also included 6 boxes of liquid soap, 6 boxes of alcohol-based hand sanitizer, 3 bags of wrapped tissue and carbonated soaps.

The members of the group who are mainly resident in Accra and abroad made the donation as their way of supporting families back home in the ongoing fight against COVID-19.

Some leading members of the group, Mrs Peace Ankor together with Madam Patience Agbava and Mr. Nat Howusu, donated the items on behalf of the group.

Mrs Peace Ankor assured the community of their support in this challenging time and advised them to adhere to all laid down protocols to ensure they don’t contract the deadly virus.

“I can assure you that we shall always be there to support you at all times but you must also do your part and ensure you stay safe,” she admonished.

Some representatives of the various clans who received the items expressed their excitement and gratitude for the support and urged other citizens to emulate the group’s example.

They expressed their gratitude to the group and wished them well.

Meanwhile, Ghana will from Thursday, May 7, begin daily testing for the COVID-19 virus to pave the way for daily updates.

So far, Ghana had conducted over 130,000 tests with a backlog of 19,829 samples awaiting testing at the Kumasi Centre for Collaborative Research in Tropical Medicine (KCCR), which they hope to clear by May 7.

The Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research (NMIMR), however, had no backlog.

Professor William Kwabena Ampofo, the NMIMR Head of Virology, College of Health Sciences, University of Ghana, disclosed this in Accra at the press briefing on COVID-19, organised by the Ministry of Information to give an update on the pandemic.

He assured Ghanaians that once the backlog of testing was cleared they would be able to provide results within 24 hours to the Ghana Health Service when samples were received from contact tracing and from hospitals’ surveillance.
