The Interior Minister Ambrose Dery says stringent measures have been rolled out in Ghana's Police Training Schools after some recruits tested positive for COVID-19 at the Pwalugu Training School in the Upper East Region.
The Minister says the school recorded some 83 cases of the virus but all the recruits have recovered and are continuing with their training.
"We continue to put in measures and all protocols, all the recruits that were infected have recovered and are continuing with their training. Some of the measures put in place include continuous education of trainees to adhere to protocols of COVID-19, isolation centres have also been made available to house those suspected to have contracted the virus".
Ghana’s case count for the novel coronavirus has seen an increase of 655 new infections pushing the total to 33,624.
There are, however, 3,655 active cases with 29,801 recoveries.
The Ghana Health Service made this known in an update published on Tuesday, July 28, 2020.
The figure also shows that the total fatalities of 168, still remain unchanged in the last 48 hours.
