COVID-19: 9-year-old among 22 dead in Ghana

A nine-year-old boy is among the 22 persons who have succumbed to the Coronavirus disease in Ghana.

The boy is the youngest to have died in the country.

 

At the press briefing in Accra today [Tuesday, March 12, 2020], the Head of Public Health at the Ghana Health Service, Dr Badu Sakordie, said the age-range of the deaths is from nine years to 82 years; and that the oldest among the victims is 82 years.

He explained that “Males are having highest range in death in all age groups with the exception of 25 to 34 years where the death rate is the same.”

He added that most of the deaths which have been recorded had other health conditions aside the COVID-19. 

Mr Sarkodie noted, for instance, that out of the 22 deaths, about 91 per cent had other health condition and that only about nine per cent didn’t have any other health conditions aside the COVID-19.

He mentioned diabetes, chronic liver diseases, asthma, obesity, stroke, prostatic conditions, acute kidney diseases, and congestive heart failure as some of the other health conditions that complicated the cases of the COVID-19 dead victims in the country.
