Children between 22 months and 11years are getting affected by the COVID-19 Virus in Ghana’s third wave of infection, health officials reported. The new delta-vibrant kills children in Accra.

Dr. Frank Owusu-Sekyere, who is in charge of the Ghana Medical Association’s COVID-19 team for the Greater Accra Region, speaking on Asaase Radio on Tuesday August 10 says, three out of five children who were admitted at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital have died from the COVID-19 Virus.

He also said the Delta-Virant is the cause of the new trend in the Nation’s Capital, Accra. “More of the COVID-19 cases are affecting children. That is not something we saw in the first and the second wave. The third wave is affecting children quite more and it’s a bit alarming.

“So far we have seen about five or six cases and unfortunately we have lost three of them to the Virus”, he said.
