We Won’t Be Pressured To Shut Down Schools – Health Minister

Mr. Kwaku Agyemang Manu, the Minister of Health, has served notice that the government would not be pressured to shut down Senior High Schools over COVID-19 fears.

He said the current number of cases recorded in some schools was not enough ground to send the students back home and that, the government was determined to deal with the outbreak and protect all students in affected schools.

The Minister told journalists after inspecting some hospital projects in the Ashanti Region that, “closing down schools is defeatist and a cowardly person’s approach to solving problems”.

He said no one could predict when the pandemic would end, so closing down schools was not the way to go, but to confront the challenge head-on.
