Hearts of Oak versus Eleven Wonders postponed indefinitely following the outbreak of H3N2 in camp

Accra Hearts of Oak’s Ghana Premier League week 30 match against Techiman Eleven Wonders which was rescheduled for Wednesday, April 25 has now been postponed indefinitely following an advice by the Ghana Health Service.

The decision follows the reports of a strange decision in the camp of the Phobians which prompted an investigation by health authorities. The results turned out that there was an outbreak of Influenza A subtype H3N2 among players of the camp.

An initial decision was taken to postpone all matches involving the club for the next seven days effectively ruling out a weekend clash and prompting a rescheduled midweek clash. However, according to the GFA, upon further advice, it has decided to indefinitely postpone the match.

In a letter addressed to the GFA president by the Ghana Health Service, the GFA should liaise with the Greater Accra Regional Health Directorate to institute appropriate prevention and control measures for subtype A.

Also, the GFA is advised to collaborate with the GHS to conduct random tests on players of other clubs that are currently not affected by the virus to determine the extent of the outbreak.

Hearts of Oak are currently fourth on the league table with 47 points from 29 matches and nine points behind league leaders Asante Kotoko who also saw their match against Ashanti Gold postponed for security reasons.

Aside from the Eleven Wonders match, Hearts of Oak will Karela at home and King Faisal away in weeks 31 and 32. They will then have the Ga Marshie derby against Great Olympics in the penultimate fixture of the season before rounding off against Real Tamale United on the final day of the season.
