This comes after Guinea reportedly recorded 7 cases so the likelihood of breaking out in Ghana is potentially high. Meanwhile, 3 people have reportedly died after the deadly disease resurfaced, years after plaguing a lot of African countries.

Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) is a rare and deadly disease in people and nonhuman primates. The viruses that cause EVD are located mainly in sub-Saharan Africa. People can get EVD through direct contact with an infected animal (bat or nonhuman primate) or a sick or dead person infected with Ebola virus.

The statement from the GHS reads,

“All Regional and District Public Health Emergency Management Committees should include EVD on their agenda. Additionally, regions, districts, health facilities, port health units at all border posts particularly along the Western border, and all landing beaches are to heighten surveillance for EVD using the standard case definition (attached).

They are also requested to remind all Ghanaians and residents in Ghana on the need to protect themselves from the disease,” the GHS said in an alert addressed to all Regional Directors of Health and all CEOs of Teaching Hospitals.
