The Minister of Education has shot down the ‘shutdown of schools’ option. Even though some state institutions have done so after some staff tested positive for Coronavirus.
Also, nine students of Mpraeso Senior High School in the Kwahu South District of the Eastern Region. Have been isolated and are awaiting results of tests conducted on them. Prior to this, eight cases of Coronavirus were confirmed at Accra Girls’ Senior High School. News of the confirmation was met with agitation from students and parents.
Moreover, a few days ago, a final-year student of KNUST SHS in Kumasi died on campus after bouts of vomiting and stomach issues. The school authorities, according to the students, neglected their colleague out of fear of contracting COVID-19. Claim authorities have debunked.
Again, some have said the decision to keep final year students in school for examination is exposing lives to the novel Coronavirus.
Already, the Electoral Commission has deployed officials to Senior High Schools to register final year students. Who are eligible to vote. An action that has received opposition from some stakeholders. They say it is illegal.
