136 students test positive for COVID-19 Delta variant in Ghana

No fewer than 136 students in a high school have been infected with the COVID-19 Delta variant, the Ghana Health Service has confirmed.

During the latest national COVID-19 update, 136 out of 550 samples taken among students in Achimota School came out positive, said Patrick Kuma-Aboagye, Director-General of the GHS.

Aboagye said that three students from the school went to the hospital last month with symptoms of influenza, but ended up testing positive for COVID-19.

“Subsequently, other symptomatic students and contacts were identified, listed and tested for COVID-19.

“However, majority of the students, who tested positive, are day students,’’ he added.
