513420755_835162It is yet to be confirmed whether the deadly Ebola Viral Disease has found its way into Ghana but reports reaching Peace FMindicates that two persons, currently admitted at the Kasoa Poly Clinic, have shown signs of it.

The two, according Peace FM’s Central Regional correspondent, Seth Mantey are from Liberia and have been residing at the Kosoa Buduburam refugee camp with their families.

He was informed by Dr. Mills, the head of the Kasoa Polyclinic that following the signs he has seen the patients display, he wouldn’t be surprised if turned out to be the Ebola viral disease.

According to Seth Mantey, aside the pain he saw the patients displayed, blood was also oozing from their eyes and ears.

“When they coughed, you could also see blood in it. Doctor Mills revealed to us that he has called on authorities to come and take samples of blood to give a proper account”.

Seth Mantey disclosed that the Kasoa Polyclinic which is situated at the Awutu Senya District has also recorded seventy one (71) cases of cholera cases. One person is reported to have died as a result.

However, with the challenges associated with the fight against the deadly Ebola Viral Disease, Peacefmonline.com would like to urge all especially government to put in safeguard measures to prevent its spread as Ghana serves as the home for most asylum seekers within Africa.
