The Ghana Health Service is leading the covid-19 case management team and regional health directors to discuss the third wave of the pandemic in an emergency meeting in Kumasi.

Six deaths have been reported in the last two updates, and an average daily case record of 150 over the last few weeks indicates that health facilities are becoming overburdened.

Last week, health officials at the Greater Accra regional and Ga east municipal hospitals said that hospital admissions had increased, with some deaths.

Twelve people are in critical condition, and another 27 are suffering from a serious illness.

According to the health service, all health directors in the 16 regions are expected to brief the case management team on the situation in their respective regions, while those within the case management team would do an assessment of the national situation.

While that meeting happens, Health experts say the surging cases signals a dawn of a 3rd wave.

As of July 14, 382 new cases had been reported, taking a cumulative active case count to 2,858.

Greater Accra with 1,599 and Ashanti region, 807 continue to lead in numbers, with 812 deaths.
