School authorities at the Mpraeso Senior High School in the Eastern Region are awaiting results of some nine students believed to have contracted COVID-19.

Even though the said students have been identified and isolated, the development has thrown the student populace into a state of fear and apprehension.

“They have been isolated from the rest of the students and their samples have been taken [as of Tuesday]. All the samples were sent to Accra for confirmation,” the Kwahu South Director of Education, Ofosu Kwakye, said.

“We are waiting for the lab results to come so we know the situation,” he added.

Mr Kwakye also added that measures have been taken to ensure the rest of the students are safe.

“Their food has been enhanced. We give them fruits and other things as we await the results,” he said.

The Ghana Education Service (GES) and the Ghana Health Service (GHS) are currently tracing contacts of infected persons in other schools.

The Accra Girls SHS and the Konongo Wesley SHS are among the schools with confirmed cases of the virus.

The GES has however appealed for calm among parents and assured that officials are working to ensure the safety of their wards.
