Ghana : H1N1 hits Aburi Girls, over 80 students infected

Via Joy Online :

" A massive wave of H1N1 influenza (swine flu) has hit another Eastern Region School, Aburi Presbyterian Senior High School, and over 80 students are believed to have been infected.

This comes barely a week after over 170 students of the St. Martin’s Senior High School at Adoagyire in the same district got infected with the diseases.

Reports say the over 80 infected students of the Aburi Presbyterian SHS have been quarantined in one of the dormitories in the school.

One of the female students (name withheld), who spoke with our reporter, Kwaku Antwi-Otoo, alleged that the school authorities do not want their parents to know about the outbreak in the school.

"We were in class on Monday, 24th May, 2010, when we saw the school vehicle, conveying some of the female students to the hospital. We enquired why and they told us they have been infected with the H1N1 flu. The school authorities are preventing our parents from knowing so as at now, am not sure our parents are aware of the outbreaks”, the student explained."
