Students of the Koforidua Secondary Technical School, (SECTEC) in the Eastern region have embarked on a special clean up exercise of the dormitories upon advice from health officials who were in the school Saturday morning.
The health officials who were in school met the students at the assembly hall and took them through some preventive measures against the disease.
This comes after a student died Friday morning at the Regional Government Hospital, of meningitis.
Sources in the school indicate that, the deceased continued to complain to his friends of severe fever and body weakness about a week ago after he took part in the School’s 50th anniversary float last week but his condition worsened and later complained of stiff neck.
He was sent to the hospital by some of his classmates Thursday at the knowledge of school authorities.
Uncle of the deceased, identified as Dr. Edwin Okoampa Boadu, in an interview with Starr News said he got to know of the ill health condition of his nephew on Friday but was met with bad news of his death upon arrival at the Hospital.
Some of the students accused school authorities for the death of their colleagues because they claim he was refused exeat to visit the hospital early.
School Authorities have so far not been available to speak on the matter.
