The Pharmaceutical Society of Ghana is worried about the recent outbreak of the H1N1 virus in some parts of the country particularly, in education institutions.

It said, the occurrence has the tendency to derail gains made in the health sector if effective methods are not employed.

Speaking to GBC’s Radio Ghana, the Deputy Executive Secretary of the Society, Kwame Peprah Boaitey, said the organisation has alerted its members to be on the lookout for symptoms of H1N1 and Cerebro Spinal Meningitis.

Mr. Boaitey said members have been alerted and are on the look out to detect and take necessary action to prevent further spread.

Mr. Peprah used the opportunity to highlight symptoms of the two viral diseases and what the public can do by way of prevention.
