BREAKING : Monkey Pox Outbreak In Ghana. 5 Confirmed Cases - GHS

Around last month, there were speculations all over on the outbreak of a disease known as Monkey Pox of which the Ghana Health Service came out to debunk such rumours. However, it seems the unfortunate thing has happened whereby Ghana has currently recorded 12 cases of the Monkey Pox with 5 cases being confirmed as at now. It was disclosed today June 8, 2022.

In a press earlier today, the Director of the Ghana Health Service, Dr. Patrick Kuma Aboagye indicated that the said cases are predominant in the Greater Accra, Eastern and Western Region with one imported case.

“So far since the outbreak in Europe occurred, we tested 12 suspected cases in Ghana since 24 May. Currently, we have confirmed five cases in three regions – Eastern, Western and Greater Accra – this is where we discovered the five cases, no death has occurred among the cases here,” he said.

“One of the cases has been recorded in a Ghanaian who travelled to the US from Ghana, he might have picked it from here,” the GHS boss said.

It is quite sad that Ghana may be grappling with this. But do not panic. The Director of the Ghana Health Service assured that several measures have been put in place to contain the situation.
