Ghana is treating a suspected case of the deadly Ebola virus, the health ministry said.

The virus has so far killed more than 460 people since it broke out in Guinea in February and spread to neighbouring Liberia and Sierra Leone.

It is the world’s deadliest outbreak to date and there is no vaccine or cure for Ebola.

The ministry said that it had put in place “precautionary measures” and that people should stay calm.

‘Under control’

The case was recorded at the Nyaho Clinic in the capital, Accra, the health ministry said in a statement.

The patient and staff at the clinic have been quarantined and provided with protective clothing, it said.
