The Wesley Senior High School (SHS) has reportedly recorded a case of the novel coronavirus that has as of July 6, 2020, claimed 122 lives.
Information gathered by Georgeweb.org indicates that health assistants have been dispatched to help with the unexpected situation in the Wesley Senior High School located in Konongo in Greater Kumasi.
The student reportedly showed symptoms similar to the novel virus and was admitted to the Konongo Government Hospital, Citi News has reported.
However, the Konongo Government Hospital diagnosed the student who has now tested positive for the virus with malaria and, consequently, discharged him to return home.
The Uncle of the student identified as Osei Kwadwo, said his nephew was left on his own to travel all the way from Konongo to Kumasi to find out that he is COVID-19 positive.
“The government has cautioned that no parent should visit their ward at any of the schools across the country… We are told that you don’t have to get close to people with coronavirus and so I am very concerned that they left the student to journey on his own alone from Konongo to Kumasi”, Uncle Osei kwadwo said.
Osei Kwadwo added that “his nephew returned to his mother and siblings and is still living with them. We don’t have any place to quarantine him.
He further disclosed that the mother of the said student has also taken a test but her results are not yet out.
