XYZ News can report that blood sample from a 12-year-old girl has been sent to the Noguchi Memorial Institute for tests to confirm if Ghana has recorded its first case of ebola.
The 12-year-old girl was first admitted at the paediatric unit of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi with symptoms of fever and bleeding.
Doctors have met over the patient and taken emergency steps to ensure she is quarantined.
The results of the test will be known in a couple of days. The deadly flesh-eating haemorrhagic disease has already killed dozens of people in neighbouring Guinea. Cases have also been reported in Liberia and lately Mali.
Update: I've found another report on this case at the Ghana News Agency, but I can't excerpt it. Key quote: "The victim, a child, was said to have been brought down from Mali and admitted at the emergency section of the facility's paediatric unit but died later." I don't know if "Mali" refers to the country or to some town in Ghana; if the latter, I don't find it on Google Maps.
