There are seven dormitories in the Kumasi Academy Senior High School (KUMACA).
The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), Alidu Seidu tells Abusua fm’s Osei Kwadwo that since Influenza H1N1 209 is an airborne disease, it has become necessary for decongestion exercise to be carried in the dormitories for thorough fumigation to take place.
According to him, government and Ghana Health Service are putting proper measures in place to find lasting solution to the problem.
“There is an ongoing dormitory project started by the PTA in the school, we are going to support them and finish that project so we can house some of the students there. There is also a library project which started by former president J.A Kuffour, we will convert it to dormitory temporally” he said.
He revealed that three students are currently on admission at Kumasi South government hospital, five students are on admission at KNUST hospital and two students on admission at KATH hospital.
