According to Dr Emmanuel Tenkorang, “It is so pathetic that students in some various secondary schools in Ashanti Region have been infected with the Covid”.
“Now people have failed to follow the COVID-19 directives and even when you go to the schools especially Secondary Schools, the students are not wearing nose masks where other directives been disregarded” Dr Emmanuel Tenkorang explained.
