AshantiGold SC head coach, Thomas Duah, says his team will bounce back from their poor run of form in the ongoing Ghana Premier League.
The miners are without a win in their last four games in the ongoing campaign. AshantiGold lost at home to Medeama SC on match day 11 by a lone goal.
The defeat at home puts a lot of pressure on Thomas Duah following his side’s poor run of form.
Speaking in an interview on Happy Sports with Ohene Bampoe Brenya on Happy 98.9FM, Thomas Duah, is hopeful his side will return to winning ways, “Sometimes things don’t go well. Looking at the matches we play and the defeats, things are difficult now”.
“The club president knows the players are doing well but the results are not forth coming. We have lost three home games and it is not easy”.
“We are hoping things will turn around very soon. The players are not agitating about bonuses or salaries which I know is not the cause of our current woes”, he added.
AshantiGold is currently placed 14th on the league table with 12 points after match day 11.
We’ve not recorded any case of ‘flurona’ – Noguchi assures Ghanaians
Senior Research Fellow at The Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research (NMIMR), Dr. Kofi Bonney, says Ghana is currently safe from the rare double infection of COVID-19 and influenza.
He noted Ghana fortunately started its influenza surveillance before the COVID-19 pandemic reach its shores “and in the course of our work we have realized Ghana has not recorded any cases of the double infection of COVID-19 and influenza.”
An unvaccinated, pregnant Israeli woman has the dubious distinction of contracting the country’s first case of “flurona”, a simultaneous infection of COVID-19 and the seasonal flu, according to reports.
The unidentified woman with mild symptoms was diagnosed with the dreaded double infection when she arrived last week at the Rabin Medical Center in Petah Tikvah, the Times of Israel said.
According to Dr. Bonney, in such severe cases of ‘flurona’, COVID-19 is likely to overtake the flu and stand alone. “It is however possible for one to be infected with 2 viruses at the same time and Ghana is currently testing for both COVID-19 and the flu and I can say we have not recorded any cases of ‘flurona’.
In an interview on the Happy Morning Show with Samuel Eshun, Dr. Bonney referred to the current harmattan season as unusual and revealed numerous reported cases of bad flu turned out to be COVID-19 infections.
The medical expert advised the populace to immediately get tested for COVID-19 if they suffer joint and body pains, and fever. “We should get tested to prevent transmitting the virus and stop blaming our conditions on the harmattan because testing is the only sure way of knowing for sure.”
Reports of people being hit with the rare combination of both illnesses first surfaced in the US in the spring of 2020, according to reports.
