He said in as much as Ghana has the means to contain it should an outbreak be reported, the world is continuously becoming a global village so no one can take a chance and say it is far away.

The global friendly game, scheduled for May 28 in Port Harcourt, between Nigeria and DR Congo could called off as a result of a fresh outbreak of Ebola in the central African country. The number of confirmed cases of Ebola has risen to 25.

The health ministry said on Tuesday that at least 17 people had died in an area of northwestern Democratic Republic of Congo where health officials have now confirmed an outbreak of Ebola, although it did not give a time-frame for the deaths.

The statement reads: "Following a fresh outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus in the Democratic Republic of Congo, the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria has re-assured passengers and other airport users of safety across its network of airports".

A total of 250,000 US dollars has been set aside for outbreak response activities, and more resources are being mobilized, the statement said. "We have isolated them".

The minister clarified with The Associated Press that testing still must be done in nine cases, and equipment to conduct rapid testing on the patients has been dispatched.


Staff of medical aid organization Doctors without Borders carry the body of a person killed by viral haemorrhagic fever, at a center for victims of the Ebola virus in Guinea. "All of the sick are presenting signs of fever, diarrhoea, vomiting, abdominal pain and intense fatigue", Ngalebato said.

Five samples were collected from hospitalized patients, three from Ikoko-Impenge and two from Bikoro.

It is believed to be spread over long distances by bats, which can host the virus without dying, as it infects other animals it shares trees with such as monkeys.

The director of the National Institute of Biological and Bacterial Research, Dr. Jean Jacques Muyembe, said Wednesday that health experts should be able to quickly contain this outbreak because the area is so remote. His mother and 10 others then showed similar symptoms.

The deadly Ebola disease also spread to Nigeria when Patrick Sawyer, who was infected with the virus, flew into the country from Liberia. An outbreak has been detected in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
