Ebola Virus

The Director-General of GHS, Dr. Patrick Kuma-Aboagye denied the claims on some media platforms stating that the country has recorded an Ebola case. The Director-General debunked these claims of an Ebola Outbreak in Ghana on Wednesday, June 22, 2022 in a news conference.

He explained that the various regional health directors and national officers of the Service regularly perform simulated exercises to check their preparation in handling disease outbreaks.

There is no Ebola in Ghana. Very often, officers from the Disease Surveillance Department of the Ghana Health Service, carry out simulation exercises to see if our preparedness for tackling some outbreaks is okay. When we find that we are not well-prepared, we improve it,” Dr. Patrick Kuma-Aboagye stated.

He added that those events in Tamale was a stimulation exercise. It was reported as an Ebola case because of a misunderstanding. It’s just a simulation. In Ghana, there are a variety of disease simulators. He therefore concluded that there is no Ebola in Ghana so the public should be calm.
