The Municipal Health Director for Tarkwa Nsueam, Dr. Jack Galley, has appealed to Ghanaians not to panic as the Ebola disease had not yet been recorded in the country.

He said health service officials had put in place strict measures to ensure that people who enter the country from any of the infected countries are properly screened.

Dr. Galley said when his outfit organized an awareness creation programme for some stakeholders in the municipality on how to prevent the spread of the Ebola disease.

He said an isolated ward had been created at the old Tarkwa Government Hospital and an additional ward would soon be set up at the new Tarkwa Government Hospital located at Bogrekrom to handle Ebola cases.

Dr. Galley called on all to join in the fight against the spread of Ebola by adhering to basic healthy lifestyle by washing hands after visiting patients in hospitals.

The Municipal Disease Control Officer, Mr. Ebenezer Tetteh, said symptoms of Ebola include intense weakness, vomiting, diarrhea, sudden and severe fever, sore throat, headache, internal and external bleeding, muscle pain, rash, impaired kidney and liver function.

Mr. Tetteh called on the public to report to the hospital authorities if they detect any body with these signs.
