The Ghana Health Service (GHS) has announced the discovery of two suspected cases of Marburg Virus disease.
They were recorded in the Ashanti Region following a test conducted on the victims.
According to the GHS, blood samples of the two persons were taken for examination after they had shown signs of Haemorrhagic Fever.
“Preliminary results suggest the infection is due to the Marburg virus,” GHS said in a statement on July 7.
The GHS noted that the samples have since been sent for confirmation in Senegal.
Further investigations on the cases and the contacts are currently underway.
