Accra: Ghana's health ministry has issued a red alert Saturday on the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD)in the country.
"It has been confirmed that some Ghanaian fishermen living and fishing along the borders of Liberia have been returning home with symptoms of EVD," Xinhua reported citing the ministry.
It urged citizens to avoid using public swimming pools and keep strict hygienic practices.
The statement suggested that people keep and use hand sanitizers often.
