Ghanaians have been unable to keep calm after the latest report has been aired concerning 55 people who have been confirmed to be positive with coronavirus at Accra Girls' SHS.
The report was sourced from a statement issued by the school indicating that a total of 314 people (staff and students) have been tested at the school so far.
Just a week earlier, students at Accra Girls Senior High School launched a protest to go home after six of their fellow pupils were confirmed positive for the COVID-19 virus in a video shared by YEN.com.gh.
Ghanaians have been reacting massively to the latest development. According to Mo Adjei, he has strong grounds to say that many other high schools are hiding their COVID-19 numbers.
Sena Blekor said it would be dangerous to prioritise certificates over lives, implying that students should rather be at home, not at school.
Bridget Abena Serwaa Addae found it hilarious that after 55 people tested positive for COVID-19 in the school the students still wish to go home.
Umaru Sanda of CitiNews suggested that soldiers need to be immediately deployed to the school to maintain order or else there would be too much chaos following the development.
Meanwhile, in another COVID-19 related development, it has been reported that President Andry Rajoelina of Madagascar has said two lawmakers in the country - one member of the Senate and one deputy - have died of COVID-19.
The president, who made the disclosure on Sunday, 12 July, said 11 other deputies and 14 senators also tested positive for the deadly disease.
YEN.com.gh recalls that President Rajoelina launched a local herbal concoction he claimed prevents and cures COVID-19.
