The premises of the Accra Girls Senior High School have been surrounded with heavy security officers as some parents have trooped there to withdraw their ward following the reported outbreak of COVID-19 in the school.
Six students have tested positive for the novel coronavirus nearly a week after the school reopened for final year students.
The patients, all students of the school, were isolated at the school’s sickbay on Monday, June 29, 2020 after showing symptoms of the novel COVID-19.
According to reports, six out of 11 students, who were tested for the virus, tested positive.
Health officials from the Ayawaso East Health directorate on Saturday, July 4, moved the students, who tested positive, to the Ga East Municipal Hospital for treatment.
However, classroom activities have come to a halt as the students are agitating to be taken home by their parents.
Reports gathered by Kingdomfmonline.com indicate that the students have staged a demonstration on campus calling on the authorities to allow them to go home.
Meanwhile, some parents have successfully withdrawn their wards from the institution over the weekend.
