The University of Ghana student who tested positive for coronavirus is nearing recovery as the University has announced that it has received reports that she is making steady progress.
The student, said to be in the third year, is currently receiving treatment in isolation at a National Quarantine facility.
She was confirmed positive with the virus on Sunday, March 15 by the Ghana Health Service.
Following that, the University of Ghana Emergency Response Team (UG-ERT), in liaison with the National Contact Tracing Team (NCTT), immediately set to work to track all students and staff that had come in contact with the affected student.
Eighty-two (82) students and twelve (12) employees were identified as primary contacts.
Seventy-four (74) of the primary contacts (students) who were present on campus at the time the University received information about the COVID-19 case, were asked to self-quarantine on campus to avoid the risk of community spread.
The remaining eight who had already left the campus for their homes as well as the employees, were advised by the UG-ERT and the NCTT to self-quarantine at home.
Meanwhile, all the primary contacts of the student have tested negative after going through the 14-day period of quarantine.
They have since been conveyed to their various destinations and have also received the necessary counselling and education on precautionary measures with respect to COVID-19.
