An estimated 2,217 students tested positive for coronavirus in 351 schools across the country since school resumed.
Director General of the Ghana Health Service (GHS), Dr. Patrick Kuma-Aboagye, made this known in an address to the media at the Information Ministry in Accra yesterday.
He stated that between June 14 and 16, 2021, three students were presented to the Achimota School sickbay with influenza-like symptoms.
He added that all three students were investigated for Covid-19 in line with laid down protocols and all tested positive, prompting the activation of the Public Health Emergency Rapid Response Teams of the Greater Accra and the Okaikoi North Municipal of the Ghana Health Service.
The GHS boss added that the students were isolated following exiting protocols, and said that other symptomatic students and contacts were identified, listed and also tested for Covid-19.
