Old students of Akwamuman SHS suggests Volta Hotel to Gov’t as quarantine centre instead of their school.


Concern old students of Akwamuman SHS in the Asuogyaman district have registered their displeasure of the decision by the government to temporarily use the school as a quarantine centre for persons suspected to have COVID-19.

The concerns of the old students are that the government failed to consult relevant stakeholders in the district before settling on the school as a quarantine centre.

Stephen Adipa Nyarko, the acting president of the Old Students, speaking to Starr News said the government has many alternatives to choose from aside Akwamuman SHSs suggesting that the Volta Hotel could also be used as a quarantine centre.

” First of all, there was no consultation for people living around to understand what all these things are about. As we speak the chiefs and the people there are having their own issue with the assembly.

“We have various alternatives withing the Asuogyaman district that could be used, Volta hotel is there, it is for the government. We have health centres in the area which are not so close to the communities,” he said.

He added that “Because of the nature of the virus, all students have left to their homes, for christ’s sake who would allow his ward to come back to the school after using it as quarantine centre,”

However, Samuel Kwame Agyekum, the DCE for the district responding to the position of the old students said the decision has been affirmed and the old students will have to appeal to the Ghana Health Service if they have concerns.

As of writing this post, Ghana’s coronavirus cases according to the Ghana Health Service is 641 with 83 recoveries and 8 deaths.
