The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for West Gonja Municipal Assembly, Karim Musah Kusubari has urged residents in the West Gonja municipality of the Savannah Region to massively take part in the ongoing Yellow Fever mass vaccination exercise.

According to him, residents need to take vaccination exercise seriously as the death toll is fast-rising. 

Twenty-two people have so far been reported to have lost their lives in three districts including West Gonja Municipal, North Gonja District, and the Bole District since the outbreak.

The West Gonja Municipal Chief Executive Mr. Musah Kusubari, in an interview with Class FM after visiting some patients, admitted at the West Gonja Catholic Hospital said the situation is becoming very serious as many people including children are dying.

He emphasized the need for everyone within the region especially the affected districts to get vaccinated as that is the only way to curb the situation.

The Administrator of the West Gonja Municipal Hospital, Frank Ameyaw Kusah for his part, appealed for more logistics for the hospital to deal with the rising cases.

Already more than 43,000 persons have so far been vaccinated across the affected districts according to the Ghana Health Service.
