Students at Accra Girls Senior High School have launched a protest to go home after six of their fellow pupils have been confirmed positive for the novel coronavirus.

In a video sighted by YEN.com.gh on the official Facebook handle of GHOne TV, the students were all dressed in uniforms and gathered in and around the school blocks shouting at the top of their voices, "we'll go home".

The disturbing part of the video is that they are clearly paying no regard to the COVID-19 protocols, as only some of them were sighted wearing face masks.

Furthermore, the protesters did not observe any social distancing protocols as they were seen packed together as they kept screaming.

This has been only one of the developing stories coming from the renowned high school in Accra following the diagnosis of COVID-19 on some of the students there.

In another developing story, scores of parents have stormed the Accra Girls Senior High School in Accra to pick up their wards to the house.

Their fear stems after six students of the school were confirmed to have tested positive and subsequently picked up to isolation facilities.

Some parents who spoke in an interview with TV3 indicated that they cannot rest knowing their wards might be at risk of catching the virus.

Meanwhile, Barbara Oforiwaa Agyemang, a beautiful 24-year-old Ghanaian's family has accused the Ridge Hospital in Accra for her passing over a wrong diagnosis of her sickness.

In a report gathered by GhOne TV and sighted by YEN.com.gh, Barbara was at a holding facility in the Accra Regional Hospital for six days, denying her of proper treatment as a COVID-19 patient.

It is indicated that throughout her entire stay at the hospital she was being treated for other ailments aside from COVID-19, and even upon her demise the cause of death was labelled as bilateral bronchopneumonia and acute pyelonephritis.
