GES top official tests positive for Covid-19

A Staff at the Okere District Education Directorate in the Eastern Region has tested positive for Covid-19.

The Staff reportedly contracted the virus from a close relation who tested positive in Accra.

Starr News has gathered that a medical team from Ghana Health Service was at the Education Office to take samples of other staff in the congested education office and informed them about the case and the need to be at post regardless.

Meanwhile, the office has been fumigated.

However, the case recorded has created apprehension among staff who are longing for rationalization of duty at the office and possibly closure until the results of the samples are released.

But the Okere District Education Director Comfort Appiah -Ofori insists all staff must be at post.
