Africa-Press – Ghana. The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has announced the postponement of Accra Hearts of Oak’s week 30 encounter against Eleven Wonders due to health concerns.
A preliminary investigation by the Ghana Health Service (GHS) indicates an outbreak of Influenza A subtype H3N2 among some players of Accra Hearts of Oak. The GHS recommended to the GFA that Hearts’ games in the next seven days should be suspended to curb the spread.
The GHS also urged the GFA to conduct random tests of footballers for clubs not currently affected by the outbreak to enable them to ascertain the extent of the outbreak.
A further statement by the GFA said: “The GFA was initially advised to reschedule the fixture between the two clubs to Wednesday, May 25, 2022. However, following the further measures by the GHS, the GFA has postponed the match indefinitely.
“A new date for the match would be announced in due course. Stakeholders are to take note and act accordingly,” a statement said. The GFA added that they would seek clearance from the GHS to give way for Hearts matches to be played in the near future.
