Meanwhile, the Ghana Health Service has slammed the media for creating panic and misinforming Ghanaians over the outbreak.
Speaking on the Morning Starr Tuesday, the Public relations officer of the Ghana Health Service Rebecca Ackwonor said the media made efforts to manage the crisis difficult.
“The media was misinforming the general public as to what was happening at KUMACA and it was that which caused the panic. The news making rounds in the media was louder than our voice. The school management not believing and accepting the advice from the GHS was as a result of the news circulating in the media”.
