The Ghana Health Service (GHS) has confirmed that no fewer than 136 students in a high school have been infected with the Covid-19 Delta variant.

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.

“We are doing the strategic testing of day students so that the infection does not spill into the community.’’

Ghana first confirmed six cases of Covid-19 Delta variants among passengers arriving in the country on June 22.
