Ghana : H1N1 flu affects 170 students of St. Martin's SHS

Via Joy Online :

" About one hundred and seventy students of St. Martin's Senior High School at Adoagyeri, near Nsawam in the Akuapem South District of the Eastern Region have been affected by the H1N1 influenza (swine flu).

Report says the symptoms of the disease were first detected on Sunday 15th of May, 2010 and since then, the number keeps increasing.

A student of the school told Asempa News that they were quarantined after the detection in a bungalow to prevent the spread.

“The disease was detected last Sunday and we reported to our teachers. The next day, they called health authorities from the Ghana Health Service and the students were put in empty bungalows”.

Asked why he came home, the student said he detected the symptoms and so decided to come home and see his doctor, but had not contracted the disease."
