Reports say three persons have been isolated at the Nsawam Government hospital in the Eastern Region for supposedly showing signs of the Ebola attack.

MultiTV’s Matilda Womegah, who visited the hospital, said blood samples of the patients have been taken for medical testing at the Noguchi Memorial Institute.

Among the patients is a 16-year-old girl who went to the infirmary Thursday with blood in her urine.

Matilda continued that a 56-year-old man also came in from a nearby village, Adawso, with blood in his urine.

The third patient’s case, she said, was a peculiar one because he had blood in his urine and faeces and was in a feverish condition.

He is a 53-year-old long distance driver, who plies the Accra-Kumasi route.

Meanwhile, the Ghana Health Service is awaiting test results of a Burkinabe, who was admitted at a health facility in Bawku in the Northern Region.

Reports suggested he showed signs of the Ebola virus.

Suspected Ebola cases under scrutiny in Ghana: authority

ACCRA, Aug. 9 (Xinhua) -- Health authority in Ghana said it is awaiting test results of four new suspected Ebola cases in the country.

The first is a Burkina Faso national with nose bleeding and fever who was rushed across boarder to the northeastern Bawku town, and died later.

Fears are that he may have had close contact with many Ghanaian port and medical officials.

The body had since been sent back to Burkina Faso, but blood samples are being tested to ascertain the ailment.

The other three being quarantined at the Nsawam government hospital near the capital. Official sources said one of them was showing symptoms of the deadly ebola virus disease.

Test results from samples of suspected Ebola cases from the Ashanti, Eastern and Upper East Regions have all proven negative, government has revealed.

There was fear and panic across the country following the death of a man who crossed the border from Pusiga in the Upper East Region to seek health healthcare at Bawku.

A similar incident was reported at Nsawam in the Eastern Region on Saturday when authorities at the Government Hospital quarantined two suspects who had reported at the facility with symptoms of the deadly virus.

But samples taken from all the cases - four from Ashanti, two from Nsawam and one from Bawku - tested at the Noguchi Memorial Centre have shown no traces of the virus in any of the patients, according to government sources.

The Presidency will be meeting the Inter Ministerial Action Group on Ebola Monday, August 11, 2014 at the Flagstaff House to evaluate Ghana's Ebola Response Strategy so far.

The meeting will be chaired by the Chief of Staff, Mr. Prospoer Bani.

There is no known cure for the deadly virus but the World Health Organisation hopes to find a vaccine by 2015.

“I think it’s realistic”, Marie-Paule Kieny, Assistant Director General of the World Health Organisation (WHO) told AFP, with clinical trials expected to get underway soon.

The epidemic, which has mostly affected Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia, has been declared an international public health emergency by the WHO.
