Three Ghanaians have died abroad, succumbing to coronavirus infections, the Foreign Ministry has revealed.
The minister, Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey, was uncertain about the full identities of the deceased but told a pool of reporters, two deaths were recorded in Italy and the other in Denmark.
One of the deceased is aged 69 or 79 years, she said but could not confirm their exact ages to journalists at the time of the interview.
Ghana has recorded seven cases – six of them Ghanaians who returned from trips in Europe and US.
So far, no one has died in Ghana. But outside the continent, the death tolls has been climbing daily.
The death rate is higher among older persons while people with weak immune systems are most susceptible to infections and deaths.
