According to him all the infected health workers are responding to treatment.
Giving the case count at a press briefing this Wednesday morning, he said 886 cases have been recorded in the region which 587 comes from Obuasi with 1 dead.
Out of 47 districts in the region, 25 have recorded cases with 51 percent of female and 49% males.
''We can currently confirm 886 cases of the coronovirus in the Ashanti Region with 7 deaths''
''About 30 front line health workers have also tested positive for the virus but we can confidently confirm that they are all in good condition and responding to treatment''
''This is the main reason why we have been advocating for adherence to the covid-19 protocols because the virus is contracted from one person to the other''
''The situation in Obuasi has improved,we have taken more samples but lower positive cases,which means the infection rate has reduced''
Dr. Tinkorang indicated that the impact of stigma,discrimination and fear make it difficult in controlling the outbreak and hence contribute to a situation where the virus is more, not less, likely to spread.
