Health ministry warns of deadly Meningitis outbreak

The Ghana health service has revealed that the season of meningitis outbreaks has started.

A report shows that close to 50 Ghanaians have so far died within the last three months since the outbreak broke. Director General of the Ghana health service, Dr. Nsiah Asare in an interview with Starr FM revealed that all plans are being put in place to ensure that the development would be strictly managed.

“ We are in the meningitis season, we are not yet at an epidemic stage but everybody has to be aware and very alert in this period. We are training our rapid response team who are training others as well. Our people are on the ground and are giving the necessary technical support.

We will get in touch with GES and see how best we can improve the health facilities in schools,” he revealed.

The outbreak of meningitis saw close to hundreds of persons dying in 2016. Just recently, the mysterious deaths of students from the Kumasi Academy has been linked to the outbreak of the disease – a development which has seen the health directorate demand a containment of all students.
