COVID-19: Virologist warns Ghana of a possible second wave

Dr Michael Owusu, a Virologist at the Kumasi Centre for Collaborative Research (KCCR) has warned Ghanaians of a possible second wave of COVID-19.

According to the Ghana Health Service, Ghana is not at risk of a second wave of COVID-19 according to their data, and such claims of the possible second wave are baseless.

However, Dr Owusu said: “It’s difficult to tell whether or not we might experience a second wave because we can’t predict how Africa will look like, but still should be a cause for concern because of how little we are testing.”

Comparing Ghana to other European countries in an interview on eTV Ghana monitored by DailyNewsGhana, Dr Owusu explain that it will be quite difficult to detect whether or not we as a country have reached our peak of the pandemic.
