The President of the National Union of Ghana Students in Wuhan, Samson Opoku says although students are calm following support from the governments of Ghana and China, they are still not relenting on efforts to get as many students back home.

Ghanaian students in Wuhan, China have been calling for evacuation following the outbreak of the virus but the Government of Ghana earlier stated it had no immediate plans to do so.

Samson Opoku in a Citi News interview said they are now depending on the support the government sends to them.

“We have not registered any case among us. The incidence rate is coming down but no one can really tell when those of us in Wuhan, the epicentre in this whole thing is going to end so we will continue to take the government support as they monitor in whatever form till the whole thing comes to an end because even the authorities cannot tell us when it will come to an end. The monies and the food items the government sent to us, all of us have received it so we are just coping and waiting on the government to keep monitoring the situation and monitoring the whole situation globally with the continuous engagement of our embassy so we see the way forward,” he said.
