Three students from one family contracts COVID-19 at PRESEC


A parent whose three sons attend Presbyterian Boys Senior High School PRESEC-Legon in Accra have contracted COVID-19.

The parent has therefore raised concerns over what he says is the rising cases of infections at the school. He claimed that about 14 students at PRESEC have allegedly been quarantined by health officials at the school while they are being treated for the deadly disease.

This came about after some students at the school reported to the school’s clinic complaining of headaches and general body weakness. The parent who is a security personnel spoke to GHOne News on conditions of anonymity said.

As i speak to you right now, they have over 14 people quarantined at the school and i can tell you on authority that six other parents are in the same predicaments as i a. Six of us, one of them works at CHRAJ. i have 3 sons in there, two of them got treated and they went back and i have gone for the third one who also has it. The third one is on oxygen, lamented the worried parent

He further mentioned that he doesn’t want to speak openly about the matter out of fear  of bringing the name of the school into disrepute.

One of the students confirmed,

” One of my friends has been in isolation for weeks”

Meanwhile the headmaster of the school, David Odjidja, declined to comment on the issue when he was approached by the GHOne News team on Monday.

It will be recalled that since the resumption of school, in early January 2021, a total of 142 Covid cases have recorded in some Junior and Senior High Schools in four regions and 56 positive cases have been confirmed in 23 schools in Greater Accra region alone.
