The president of the Republic of Ghana H.E Nana Akufo-Addo in his 9th address to the nation assured Ghanaians that the more tests they conduct, the more new cases are revealed.

“We must understand that the more people we test for the virus, the more persons we will discover as positive, and, thus, have the opportunity to isolate and treat them. If you do not test people for the virus, you will not find the persons who are positive, let alone isolate them from the population and treat them, and prevent them from spreading the virus.”
