A student of the Wesley Senior High School at Konongo in the Ashanti Region has reportedly tested positive for COVID-19.
According to Citi News, a team of health workers and contact tracers have been dispatched to the school following the confirmation of the case.
Reports indicate that the student was earlier rushed to the Konongo Government Hospital after showing symptoms of the virus but was diagnosed with malaria and asked to return home.
According to an uncle of the student, Osei Kwadwo, his nephew was left on his own to travel from Konongo to Kumasi only to find out that he is COVID-19 positive.
He is not happy about the development and says the student has since not been isolated and is living with his mother and other siblings at home.
He is also blaming health officials and school authorities for not handling the issue properly.
He says the student’s mother has since taken the COVID-19 test and awaiting her test results.
