Story by Carlos Afanou

Seven out of the 55 people in Accra Girls Senior High School who tested positive for Covid-19 have recovered and have been discharged.
Two weeks ago, the school revealed that six of its students had tested positive for the disease.
However, after, mass testing by the Ghana Health Service (GHS), it was discovered that 55 out of 315 tests carried out on both teachers and students have contracted the disease.
Subsequently, the infected persons were sent to isolation centres for management and treatment.
And so far seven have recovered and have returned to the school premises.
Prior to this, many parents thronged the school premises to withdraw their wards when report of Covid-19 cases in the school was announced.

But school authorities and government insisted that the school is a better placed to manage the students and the risk associated with Covid-19 than releasing them to go home.
As other Senior High Schools in parts of the country have recorded cases, teacher unions and parents have reiterated calls for government to shut down schools.
