He indicated in an interview with Kwami Sefa Kai on the Kokrokoo show of Peace Fm that, the  259 individuals who tested negative have been given the permission to resume their normal activities whereas units have been prepared to give adequate measures and counseling to combat stigmatization against infected individuals in the school premises.

“We have only informed the parents of the students who tested positive . . . if a parent has not been called it means your ward was not included,”
