A second-year student of Oyoko Methodist Senior High School in the Eastern Region has been reported dead after writing her end of year exams.

The student, identified as Jennifer Naa Doku Bolor, was said to have died on Thursday, July 30, after her last exam paper for the semester.

According to the Ghana Education Service, Jennifer reported sick to the school nurse after the exams, and while she was being attended to, she collapsed and was rushed to the St. Joseph’s Hospital.

“Jennifer unfortunately died on arrival at the emergency ward. Management of GES is waiting for the hospital authorities for the cause of death,” a statement signed by the Head of GES’ Public Relations Unit, Cassandra Twum Ampofo read.

This is the fourth reported death of a student in a senior high school since schools were partially reopened.

Earlier this month, a final-year student of the Methodist Girls Senior High School (MEGHIS) at Mamfe, Akuapem in the Eastern Region, Cindy Aku Sika Addo, was reported dead after she fell sick.

Another student, Nathaniel Yankey, of the Gwiraman Senior High School, died after being rushed to the Essikado Hospital.

A student called Richard Sam also died at the KNUST Senior High School after complaining of stomach, for which school authorities allegedly neglected him for fear of Covid-19.
