There is heavy security presence at the Accra Girls Senior High School after parents began trooping there to withdraw their wards.

This follows reports that the school has recorded some cases of coronavirus nearly a week after the school reopened for final year students.

Some parents successfully withdrew their wards from the institution over the weekend.

Speaking on Beyond the Lockdown, JoyNews reporter Maxwell Agbaba stated that one parent said their ward was asthmatic and could not risk having her catching the virus.

Many more parents have returned to Accra Girls SHS, to take their kids from the school amid fears their wards may be in danger of getting infected.

According to the reporter the parents are unwilling to leave without their wards behind as they cannot guarantee what will happen to them.

The presence of heavy security has halted classroom activities as students are also requesting to be taken home.
