Mr Kojo Ayibor, the Headmaster of Ada Senior High School, said the school had ten COVID-19 cases with four recoveries. He mentioned that the school was awaiting the results of the remaining six students’ samples.
“We hope that the samples taken will test negative,” the Headmaster said, “so that those in isolation can return to their different classes.”
He expressed hope that the students would recover quickly, stating that the students’ quick recoveries had assured the School Authorities that the Ada SHS would be virus-free soon.
At Ada near Tema, Mr Ayibor was speaking with Madam Comfort Doyoe Kudjoe Ghansa, Member of Parliament for Ada Constituency, and the Ghana News Agency.
The MP was on a tour to some of the constituency’s educational institutions, encouraging school officials, students, and teachers to follow the COVID-19 protocols.
As an MP and a mum, Madam Ghansa told the GNA that she saw visiting the school to examine the COVID-19 condition on the ground as both a constitutional and parental responsibility.
She took advantage of the opportunity to urge school officials to strictly follow the COVID-19 protocols and to urge students to avoid stigmatizing infected people.
“Wash your hands thoroughly and use your sanitisers when you are in your classroom. Eat a lot of fruits, especially those with calcium and citric acid that will boost your immune system,” she said.
On the National COVID-19 Vaccination, the MP urged the students not to panic.
