The warehouse in which all Ebola drugs are stored in the country was razed down by fire on Tuesday. Cholera drugs as well as drugs for HIV/AIDS and other diseases were consumed by the ferocious fire.
Ghana has been named as the headquarters for the fight against Ebola in Africa and has received from World Health Organisation (WHO) supplies of medical equipment and medicines.
Tony Goodman, the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Ministry of Health, disclosed to the DAILY GUIDE that “this is where we keep all our drugs we had from the international organisation to fight Ebola and we have nothing to salvage.
Everything has gone down the drain when the fire occurred.’
The health ministry PRO was of the view that there is urgent need to get drugs such as that of the Ebola virus and malaria immediately before any outbreak or emergency in the country.
According to most Ghanaians who raised red flag over the country’s preparedness to handle the dreaded Ebola virus, should any eventuality hit the country as a result of the disaster, measures should be put in order to bring such drugs into the country
