Final year Senior High School students returned to school on Monday, June 22 to prepare for their final exams after President Akufo-Addo directed all schools in the country to be closed from March 16. Unfortunately, six students of Accra Girls SHS tested positive for the COVID-19.
According to reports gathered by Ghnewsfile.com, students of the Accra Girls Senior High School on hearing this have staged a demonstration on campus calling on the authorities to allow them to go home following the reported outbreak of COVID-19 in the school.
The patients, all students of the school, were isolated at the school’s sickbay on Monday, June 29, 2020, together with some other students who also showed symptoms of COVID-19.
According to reports, six out of eleven students who were tested for the virus tested positive. Health officials from the Ayawaso East Health directorate on Saturday, July 4, moved the students who tested positive to the Ga East Municipal Hospital for treatment.
The terrified students are demanding that they are allowed to leave the school to prevent them from contracting the deadly disease with some parents even ready in the school to pick their children home.
School authorities are yet to speak on the matter.
The question on board now is, Should the students be allowed to stay on campus or allow them to go home? Drop your comments and suggestions.
