It was reported that two students, suspected to be infected with COVID-19 were quarantined by the Ghana Health Service (GHS) in the Upper East Region for further investigation.

Stephen Yakubu, the Regional Minister, at the launch of a COVID-19 Emergency Response  Project (CERP) in Bolgatanga, said the GHS had begun contact tracing to check any possible spread of the virus.

The Minister urged unvaccinated residents to immediately get jabs of the COVID-19 vaccine at any nearest health facility, noting that the virus was not completely eliminated in the region or country as a whole.

Dr. Josephat Nyuzaghl, the Deputy Director of Health Services, told A1 Radio’s Mark Smith that the cases have yet to be verified. Dr. Nyuzaghl reassured residents in the Upper East Region that they should not be alarmed because the cases were mild. 

“Those cases were screened using the antigen tests and they tested positive. Samples have been sent for confirmation. We don’t have confirmation yet but the good thing is that those cases were mild cases and they’re being managed at home. There’s really no cause for alarm,” he said.
