Authorities of the Mfanstipim School in the Central Region have debunked reports of COVID-19 cases amongst their students.
The Headmaster of the Mfanstipim School, Rev. Ebenezer Kobina Aidoo, said all students are safe and thus urged parents not to worry.
“As far as I am concerned, there is no truth in that. No sample has been taken from our students let alone, testing. Yesterday, when I got the news, I was so alarmed so I had to go and see the Regional Director who was also confused and also confirmed that no sample has been taken from any of our students.
He added: “So that story is not true so parents should be calm and we are doing all we can to ensure that we don’t have any COVID-19. So all parents should be assured that it is not true. There is no case of COVID-19 here.”
This comes after the Director of the Ghana Health Service, Dr Patrick Kuma-Aboagye, on Tuesday, July 7, 2020, at a press briefing included Mfanstipim School in its lists of schools that have confirmed cases of the disease.
“We have people in Ada Secondary whose samples have been taken because we have suspected cases. We have the Pru West and the Prang Secondary School, where we also have one or two cases that we are trying to follow up on contacts and test them. In the Central Region, my current evidence is that we have two cases in Mfanstipim, and one in Mankessim,” Dr Patrick Kuma-Aboagye said.
