This he indicated was in line with government’s resolve to prevent the spread of the disease.


Government through the ministry of health is also distributing antibiotics to the Ashanti, Upper East, Upper West, Northern, and the Brong Ahafo region, which have been hardest hit by the disease.

The Minister who went on a two-day tour of some areas in the country affected by the disease said, “I’ve already asked for the release of GHc200,000 further, this time not just to Brong Ahafo Region, but we’ve spread the amount in small dosages across all the regions of the country because there are some sporadic one of cases reported in each of them.”

Alex Segbefia also noted that Brong Ahafo, which has recorded most of the meningitis cases, will receive about GHc90, 000 to add up to what they already have and assured health personnel in the Brong Ahafo region of government‘s continuous support to prevent the disease from spreading further.

The Techiman Deputy District Health Director in charge of Public Health, Dr Osei Kuffour Afreh, called on government to assist them with logistics to help them deal with the situation.
