Bawumia to Visit KUMACA Today
Vice-President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia will today, Friday, 8 December, 2017 visit the Kumasi Academy School in the Ashanti Region to commiserate with the teachers, families and students in relation to the Swine Flu outbreak that has killed four students with over 44 reported cases recorded.
“My prayers are with the school and the bereaved families in these difficult moments. I will be visiting the school and the bereaved families today by the grace of God,” Dr Bawumia posted on Facebook.
The post further read: “On behalf of the President, the Government and people of Ghana, I wish to express our heartfelt sympathies and condolences to the families, teachers, students and friends of Kumasi Academy Senior High School who have been affected by the H1N1 virus.
“My heart goes out to the families of the four promising students who have lost their life through the outbreak of the swine flu. May the souls of the departed students rest in perfect peace. I wish those admitted in hospitals speedy recovery.
“I know that parents and other schools are getting nervous about the possibility of further outbreak of swine flu in their respective schools. I will like to assure the public of Government’s resolve to continue to review and strengthen measures to prevent the spread of H1N1 flu around the country and keep our schools safe.
“I am very grateful for the health care professionals and education staff who have worked tirelessly to contain the virus and prevent further outbreak.”
Meanwhile, some students of the school have rejected conclusions that the recent deaths in the school were caused by Influenza type A H1N1 2009 pandemic strain (Swine Flu) insisting there is a spiritual cause.
They have, therefore, called on Ministers of God, both home and abroad to intervene through intercessory prayers.
