The Western Regional Health Directorate has diffused speculation of the Region recording a case of monkey pox condition.

Dr Yaw Ofori Yeboah, Regional Health Director in a statement to the Ghana News Agency said though a patient who presented himself at a health facility in Ahanta West District had blisters that looked like the condition, the preliminary investigation had proven otherwise.

He said, the Region was thus free of such ailment but said further surveillance would be conducted in advancing public health early warning signals.

There are reports circulating on social media that Ahanta West Municipality in the Western Region has recorded a case of monkey pox condition.
