By now its very clear that the President might be forced to close down schools as positive cases of COVID-19 keep rising on a daily basis.

It will be recalled that over the weekend the number of COVID-19 cases from students at the Akosombo International School had risen from 37, to 79 according to reliable sources.

In other schools and colleges, the cases are rising by the day and it is expected that this would give the President no other choice but to shut them down before it gets out of control.

News monitored for a local station, KasapaFM reported that the number had shot up to 74 students in addition to 5 staff members.
