A worker infected 533 others with coronavirus at a factory in Ghana, president says

(CNN) Hundreds of factory workers at a fish processing plant in Ghana have tested positive for the coronavirus, the country’s president Nana Akufo-Addo said.

All 533 of them contracted the virus from one worker at the factory in the port city of Tema, the president said in his public address to the nation Sunday.
The factory infection was detected from a backlog of 921 samples collected for testing last month that health officials just reported, Akufo-Addo said.

He did not give further details about the operations or measures to be taken about the situation.

CNN has reached out to Ghana’s health ministry for comment and is awaiting a response.

The mass infection at the facility brings the total number of confirmed cases in the West African nation to 4,700, the president said, adding that 22 people have died of coronavirus-related illnesses since the outbreak was reported in the country in March.
