Nsein Senior High School which is located at Nsein-Axim in the Western Region of Ghana earlier last week was reported to have had 8 of it’s Final Year Students test positive for the Novel Coronavirus popularly known as COVID-19.
As we speak now, in a report shstrendz.com received from our Western Regional Student Reporter, has it that 50 Students of the School are currently being quarantined by Health Officials in the Region following suspicion to have test positive after their temperatures risen above the required range.
However, authorities of the school have been quick with good steps towards ensuring safety protocols and measures in Ghana’s fight towards COVID-19. We cannot authoritatively say those 50 students have tested positive since Ghana Education Service (GES) and the Ghana Health Service (GHS) has not come out in a release to confirm that.
Contact tracing and investigation are been applied to break the chain of transmission of this infectious disease in the School, as is thus an essential Public health tool for controlling Infectious disease outbreaks
In the Central Region, the Mfantsipim School recorded two confirmed cases, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum told the media.
In all, about 15 final year second cycle students have tested positive for the virus barely a month after reopening.
Government, on the other hand, has given indications that it is working relentlessly to protect students.
