Ghana has not recorded any cases of Ebola Director-General GHS
Ministry of Information recently refuted reports that Ghana has recorded cases of Ebola.
Director-General of Ghana Health Service(GHS), Dr. Patrick Kuma- Aboagye, has stated emphatically that Ghana has not recorded any case of Ebola.
The Director-General was speaking at a press briefing at the Ministry of Information recently refuting reports that Ghana has recorded cases of Ebola. The Director-General noted that his outfit does a regular simulation exercise as a way of testing the disease-readiness of the system. "As a service, we always do a simulation to see if a person contracts Ebola, how ready will the immune system be so that is the exercise we were doing in Tamale in the Northern Region", he disclosed.
As part of his outfit's regular exercise, he noted he seeks to test the system-readiness of humans to ascertain how the Ebola virus will cause the human body to react should the Ebola attack either it will resist or stand the attack of the Ebola disease", he explained. "Should I have Ebola today is my system ready", he questioned. The simulation exercise does not mean there is an Ebola virus in Ghana.
