Ebola scare hits Dominase; 1 dead, 2 hospital staff quarantined

An Ebola scare at the Dominase SDA Hospital in the Ashanti Regional has created panic in the area.

A man believed to be in his late twenties died in the hospital with the symptoms of Ebola Tuesday.

He was left unattended to by frightened hospital staff who did not have basic protective equipment with which to handle the patient.

According to the Medical Superintendent of the hospital, Prince Kwakye Afriyie, the deceased reported to the hospital three days ago with fever.

He was treated and discharged.
But the Pusiga native returned to the hospital, this time with blood oozing out of his orifices, Dr Afriyie said.

Frightened hospital, suspecting the victim to be suffering from the deadly Ebola which has killed over 2000 across West Africa, called the District health authorities for Personal Protective Equipment.

There was none there.
More soon.
