Ghanaian actor, philanthropist and farmer, John Dumelo believes the number of coronavirus cases in Ghana is more than what has been recorded.

In a post on Twitter, the aspiring Member of Parliament on the ticket of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) at Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency bemoaned the number of test kits in the country currently.

He, therefore, called on the government to get more test kits and increase the capacity of facilities designated for testing.

John Dumelo wrote: “The gov shld as a matter of urgency get more test kits and Increase d capacity of facilities doing d actual testing. Cases are Increasing in bits because our testing capacity is small. Increase d testing capacity & u will realize we actually have more cases than being reported.”

According to Ghana Health Service, As at 2nd April 2020, the country has recorded 204 cases COVID-19 with five (5) deaths. The number of regions reporting cases remain five (5) (Greater Accra, Ashanti, Northern, Upper West and Eastern). The Greater Accra Region has most of the cases (183) followed by the Northern Region (10), Ashanti Region (9), Upper West Region (1) and Eastern Region (1).
