Health officials are advising students of the Koforidua Secondary Technical School, (SECTEC) in the Eastern region of best practices to prevent a spread of the disease.
This has seen students embark on a special clean-up exercise of the dormitories upon advice from health officials who were in the school.
Earlier on, a Form Two student at the Koforidua Secondary Technical School (SECTEC), Yaw Dennis, has died of Meningitis.
School authorities say the deceased had earlier complained about severe fever and body weakness about a week ago but his situation got worse later when he complained of a stiff neck.
Uncle of the deceased, Dr Edwin Okoampa Boadu, said his nephew died upon arrival at the hospital. Speaking to Starr FM, the bereaved man narrated how he heard of the news moments before his passing.
“We went to the school to let them know what has happened because we were told in the hospital that it is this ongoing virus, meningitis that has killed the boy so we quickly went to the institution, to inform the housemaster and the leadership that with this situation they should quickly create awareness for the students.” he stated.
This isolated case at Koforidua SECTECH is less likely to be taken for granted looking at the extensive damage and loss of lives caused as as result an outbreak of Swine Fever at Kumasi Academy.
