Insist on Your Right to Education

Uneducated citizenry is like a pitch any game can be played on it. Illiteracy is what has given the politicians in Ghana the chance to fool so many people for so a long a time.

The Ghana Health Service (GHS) has confirmed to Joy News it has detected a case of swine flu in the capital.

Details are sketchy but the Director General of the Ghana Health Services, Dr. Elias Sory, says researchers at the ministry are conducting a series of tests on the case.

He however says this case in Accra is not related to a publication in the Today Newspaper about a reported case at Efia Nkwanta Hospital in the Western Region.

He said samples of the Western Region case have only arrived in Accra for laboratory tests.

A media briefing is expected later Thursday on the swine flu discovered in Accra and the reported case at Efia Nkwanta Hospital.

Swine flu is a deadly respiratory disease caused by a strain of the influenza type A virus known as H1N1.
