Dr Kwaku AGyemang-Mensah, the Health Minister, has given confidence that there will not be any case of Ebola in Ghana given the amount of works officials have put in to prevent the disease from spreading out in the country.
He said, “I have been saying that we will talk briefly about Ebola, but we won’t see one because we are doing our best in order to control this deadly disease.”
On October 2, when the Health Minister began distribution of personal protective equipment (PPE) Dr. Mensah was speaking on Thursday, to Frontline health workers in the prevention campaign on Ebola.
The disease has so far destroyed many homes and claimed 3,300 lives, in four West African countries, according to the World Health Organization.
As the fifth West African country, though having recorded a case, Senegal has been yet to record deaths as the victim, a student from Guinea, has recovered.
Ghana, the Blood samples of all suspected patients have tested negative.
Chaired by the Health Minister, an Inter-Ministerial Team on Ebola is managing all activities aimed at preventing an outbreak of the disease in Ghana.
Dr Agyemang-Mensah maintains that the invested amount of work by the Team, coupled with efforts by the district and regional health directorates will make it difficult for the virus to thrive in Ghana.
A team of eleven-member is in Ghana from the United Nations Mission on Ebola Emergency Response (UNMEER) while more are expected to land soon.
Wake in certain quarters, criticism especially within the Ghana Medical Association (GMA) that enough is not being done in the fight against the virus.
