Accra Hearts of Oak have been hit by a strange disease that has left about 15 players hospitalized in Accra.

The first to be rushed to the hospital for treatment was attacker Daniel Afriyie Barnieh, who reportedly had symptoms of cough, cold, and malaria.

On Sunday night, midfielder Fredrick Ansah Botchway was also rushed to the Mamprobi Polyclinic for treatment after complaining of similar symptoms.

Other players, such as Nurudeen Abdul Aziz, have been taken ill at the Universal Clinic in Madina, while Seidu Suraj and Amankwah Baafi have also been admitted.

Other players who have not yet been named have been reported to have visited the hospital for treatment and are currently on medication.

Sulley Muntari, Samuel Inkoom, and Gladson Awako, on the other hand, have escaped the illness.

Only five players reported for training on Monday, with the majority of the stars unable to attend with only two days until the game.

The situation may have an impact on Hearts of Oak’s midweek match against Bibiani Gold Stars on Wednesday at the Accra Sports Stadium.

Due to their inability to raise enough players for the match, the defending champions may request that their match be postponed.

Although the club has not determined the cause of the disease, it appears that food poisoning is not the cause of the widespread illness at the Hearts of Oak camp.

According to reports, the hotel where the team stayed was possibly infested with mosquitoes. Hearts of Oak who used to camp at Accra’s San Hotel have moved to another hotel.
