COVID-19: Ghana ranked third in World Survey on Epidemic Control work, Economic Recovery


Ghana’s effective management of the CoronaVirus Pandemic has received International recognition according to the Yicai Research Institute.

According to a World Survey conducted by China’s largest financial media group, Ghana follows China and Sri Lanka as shining examples in the battle against the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Yicai Research Institute used the SEIR epidemiological model to predict the state of the pandemic in different nations, classing them as either Susceptible, Exposed, Infectious or Removed as well as its own self-developed ‘social network-based virus transmission model’.

Per the survey, Ghana Ghana’s strategy for managing the COVID-19 pandemic has yielded positive results and has earned the country a number status in managing the virus.

Meanwhile, Government is expected to outline the successes chalked in the management of the Covid-19 pandemic at the next Nation Building Updates (NBU) scheduled in Accra on Tuesday, October 20.

The Updates is a weekly event designed by the Information Ministry to provide stakeholders in the country’s democracy with detailed updates on key interventions executed by government.

Tuesday’s program is on the theme “protecting lives and livelihoods in the midst of crises.”

It will assemble members of the government Covid-19 Response Team who will use the platform to outline the progress made in fighting the pandemic after Ghana recorded its first cases in March 2020.

Government will also use the opportunity to take feedback from Ghanaians and stakeholders on its five-part strategy in managing the pandemic and the next step in dealing with future cases.

Currently, Ghana’s Covid-19 active cases has further declined to 398, with 46,664 recoveries and 310 deaths.

The much anticipated event will display the Akufo-Addo administration’s record in the whole crisis management set up which has received massive global commendations.

The Nation Building Updates will be televised on all major stations across the country and social media handles of the Ministry of Information.
