Ghana Records 'EBOLA' Cases as Ghana Health Service Advices Ghanaians

Published 16 days ago - 0 views

Ghana Health Service has cautioned all Ghanaians and stakeholders in the various health sectors in the country over the outbreak of Ebola Virus Disease. The institution brought out a statement on 15th February, 2021 after confirming about seven(7) people contracting the virus. Out of the seven(7) who have tested positive for the virus, three(3) have died.

Ebola has evaded so many countries in Africa with Ghana being one of the luckiest countries not to have recorded a case in the past but not anymore. Ebola is a deadly viral disease that is spread through body contact. It can also be spread through fluids from the body such as urine, sweat, vomit, saliva, semen and blood. Ebola has no confirmed cure and some of the symptoms include headache, fever, body weakness, muscle pains, vomiting and blood from open spaces on the body such as eyes and nose.

In a statement signed by Dr. Patrick Kuma-Aboagye, the general director of the Ghana Health Service has served a warning to all health facilities across the country to be well prepared for cases of Ebola Virus disease. He also entreat all health units at the borders of the country to increase surveillance for Ebola Virus Disease.

In addition, the health service is also serving a strong caution to the general public to avoid close contact with body fluids and blood of people who show signs of the deadly virus and also practice good hygiene.

It will be very disheartening if Ghana is to record more cases of Ebola Virus Disease since the country is already battling with the novel coronavirus. The Ebola Virus Disease and Coronavirus have certain similarities with their mode of transmission, symptoms and cure. Both have no cure though vaccines have been produced to control them. Ghana needs to prepare very well so as not to face worse conditions just like other African Countries like Congo which has been greatly affected by the Ebola Virus.
