The majority of Ghanaians following the outbreak of COVID-19 in some Senior High Schools (SHSs) has attributed the sudden and continual deaths of some students to the novel coronavirus that has claimed at least 175 lives as of July 31, 2020.
The recent reported one is the demise of a female form 2 Gold track student of Oyoko Methodist Senior High School in Koforidua.
According to Management of the school, the late female student collapsed while writing Literature in English Paper Thursday afternoon. She was rushed to the St. Joseph Hospital but pronounced dead on arrival.
Information gathered by Kasapa News indicates that the General Arts student was not well in the last three days, and was treated at the sick bay but collapsed during the examination and died.
However, the Director of Health Promotions at the Ghana Health Service, Dr Aboagye DaCosta in an interview with Bonohene Baffuor Awuah on Anopa Kasapa on Kasapa 102.5 FM monitored by Georgeweb.org disregard such speculation insisting that none has died of the novel virus.
“None of them who were asked to resume schooling has died of the novel Coronavirus and that must be placed on record. Those who have died lost their lives to other ailments,” he noted.
