No Ebola case in Ghana – Ghana Health Service
The Ghana Health Service has clarified that no case of Ebola has been recorded in Ghana.
This follows false publications on some news portals that there is an outbreak of Ebola in the Northern Region.
At a press conference on Wednesday, the Director General of the Service, Dr. Patrick Kuma-Aboagye noted that there was a simulation exercise held in Tamale to gauge the preparedness of health officials to deal with an outbreak.
“We don’t have any Ebola case. There was a simulation exercise being carried out at Tamale that should there be an Ebola outbreak would the system be ready; would the labs be ready…I think somebody misconstrued that to be a real outbreak. It is one of the simulation exercises we routinely do for such cases should it happen whether it is Lassa fever, yellow fever,” he said.
Ebola topped the trends since the false news broke, causing panic among the Ghanaian populace.
