According to a post on the Ghana Education Service Facebook page, seven girls of the Accra Girls Senior high school and a teacher have recovered from COVID-19 after contracting the disease last two weeks.
The post stated that “Seven Accra Girls SHS students and a teacher’s spouse who were attacked by the deadly coronavirus have recovered fully. They have all been warmly welcomed on campus. The rest are doing very well and we pray they recover fully as well and join their colleagues soon”.
Meanwhile, 55 cases have now been recorded in the school which has sparked fear and panic among students but school authorities are assuring students not worry.
Parents of the wards in the school besieged the school two weeks ago to take the wards home but were denied access to their wards by a joint military and police forces that were deployed to the school premises by government.
However, a large number of Ghanaians are calling on the government to shut down schools to allow the final year students to go back home but the PRO for the education ministry Vincent Ekow Assafuah thinks otherwise.
Speaking on TV3 newday last week, he said “the few numbers of cases recorded in the schools doesn’t warrant a closure,” and therefore called the calls made by NDC and other individuals as balderdash.
