A seven-year-old pupil at Sefwi Akontomra in the Western Region has developed strange spots on his body after he was given a wrong medical prescription at Sefwi Akontomra Hospital.

Currently, Emmanuel Ameyaw cannot talk and walk since the strange spots have affected almost every part of the body.

Emmanuel Ameyaw has since been admitted at Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) in Kumasi after errors committed by medical doctors at the Akontomra Hospital.

PrimeNewsGhana’s checks at the KATH on Thursday reveal the seven year old boy is responding to treatment.

Madam Dorcas said currently, Emmanuel Ameyaw cannot talk and walk, hence the decision to rush him to KATH for further treatment.
