Mass testing for COVID in SHS unrealistic – CCT Spokesperson

The Communications Manager for the Coalition of Concerned Teachers (CCT) Adokwei Awuley has described as unrealistic calls for mass testing of students and staff in school.

The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and some health experts have led calls for mass testing of students especially those in Senior High Schools (SHS).

In an interview with Sena Nombo on the Gold Power Drive, the CCT Spokesperson says the calls even though justifiable is impracticable.

Adokwei Awuley explained that the call for mass testing means Ghana would have to find money to test over 700,000 students.

Government has so far done over 300,000 tests for the entire population amidst complaints of shortages of test kits and reagents.

Health workers recently complained about what they say was a reduction in testing and the delay in releasing results.

The CCT spokesperson believes these challenges make the mass testing proposal unrealistic.
