Mysterious death visits 3 Students of Kumasi Academy SHS within a week

A first-year-student of Kumasi Academy Senior High School (KUMACA) has died from Meningitis bringing the death toll recorded under similar circumstances in the school to three in the last week.

The death of Fodjour Furgerson Livingstone, a General Arts student who died at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) brings to six of such occurrences this year.

Luv News sources say several other students are on admission at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) Hospital and KATH.

Ohemeng Tawiah reported the death of two students on Friday who were rushed to the hospital after they complained of “fever-like conditions” at the school’s clinic.

Three students of the school died under similar circumstances in April this year, sparking off chaotic uproar as parents besieged the school in a desperate move to take their wards home.

The latest incident had come at a time the school is preparing to round up activities to climax the 60th-anniversary celebrations.

Brother of the deceased, Fodjour Martins said Furgerson called on Thursday also complaining of fever and he was rushed to the Tafo hospital, where he was later referred to KATH.

According to Luv News, reports of parents withdrawing their wards from the school was later found to be untrue although they say information available to them says it is imminent.

Meanwhile, results of a postmortem conducted on the deceased did not reveal meningitis as had been widely claimed by some students, the reporter added.

Ohemeng Tawiah said blood samples of the affected students have been sent to the Noguchi Memorial Institute in Accra for examination.

As a result school authorities have remained tight-lipped over the incident, the reporter said.
