The Public Relations Officer of the KMA, Henrietta Afia Konadu Aboagye said the new Delta variant was detected in the metropolis in December 2021.

She also called on various stakeholders to intensify education and sensitization of the COVID-19 virus.

“After the festive season, we realized a lot of people were coming in with a lot of cases, but later we realized that people were coming in with the new Delta variant. The Public Health Committee that is helping the Assembly with the outbreak has recorded over 200 cases.”

“This number is too huge for this short period. So we are drawing the attention of the general public not to relax with the protocols so that we can curtail the infection rate”, she added.
