Three suspected Ebola patients isolated at Nsawam Gov't hospital

Reports say three persons have been isolated at the Nsawam Government hospital in the Eastern Region for supposedly showing signs of the Ebola attack.
MultiTV’s Matilda Womegah, who visited the hospital, said blood samples of the patients have been taken for medical testing at the Noguchi Memorial Institute. Among the patients is a 16-year-old girl who went to the infirmary Thursday with blood in her urine.
Matilda continued that a 56-year-old man also came in from a nearby village, Adawso, with blood in his urine.
The third patient’s case, she said, was a peculiar one because he had blood in his urine and faeces and was in a feverish condition.
He is a 53-year-old long distance driver, who plies the Accra-Kumasi route. Meanwhile, the Ghana Health Service is awaiting the test of a result of a Burkinabe, who was admitted at a health facility in Bawku in the Northern Region.
Reports suggested he showed signs of the Ebola virus.
