According to a statement issued by the Regional Emergency Health committee, a total of 33 individuals were identified to have returned from various regions since Saturday.
However, only three of these returnees were from the Greater Accra Region, Kumasi, and Kasoa and have all tested negative.
Also, the cases of seven nurses, a physician assistant, a pharmacist and a record staff of the St Joseph Hospital in Koforidua, who were quarantined after attending to a suspected carrier on Sunday, have also tested negative.
