|Over the past four weeks, the Ghana Health Service has received reports of confirmed Yellow Fever (YF) cases from the Brong-Ahafo and Volta regions.
A total of four cases with no deaths have been reported.
Three (3) are from Jaman South district in the Brong-Ahafo region & one (1) from Central Tongu district in the Volta Region.
**THERE IS NO NEED TO PANIC AS THE CASES ARE CONFINED TO A FEW COMMUNITIES IN THE AFOREMENTIONED DISTRICTS, AND PREVIOUS WIDESPREAD VACCINATION IN 2011 IN THOSE DISTRICTS PROVIDED MOST PEOPLE WITH IMMUNITY AGAINST YELLOW FEVER. (THE YELLOW FEVER VACCINE IS PROTECTIVE FOR LIFE)**
SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF YELLOW FEVER
TREATMENT: Treatment is mostly symptomatic.
MODE OF SPREAD: Spread is through the bite of infected Aedes mosquito.
