13 people have mysteriously died in the past 7 months at the Kumasi Academy Senior High School.
The cause of the deaths was unknown until barely 24 hours ago when the Ashanti Regional Director of Ghana Health Services, Dr. Emmanuel Tinkorang revealed that the infection has been diagnosed as H1N1 Influenza virus also known as Bird Flu.
Prior to this revelation, the founder, and leader of Glorious Word Power Ministry International, Rev. Isaac Owusu Bempah claimed that the cause of the mysterious deaths is spiritual.
Rev. Owusu Bempah went on to say it’s an evil spirit that is behind the senseless deaths and intense prayers are needed to curtail it. He also stated that Ghanaians should pray against a national outbreak of the ‘evil spirit backed deaths’ at KUMACA.
Meanwhile, according to the Ashanti Regional Director of Ghana Health Services, blood samples of the three first-year male students of the school, who died under mysterious circumstances within 48 hours were sent to the Noguchi Memorial Research Institute by the health directorates to ascertain the cause of death and the results released confirms H1N1 Influenza as the cause.
Dr. Emmanuel Tenkorang gave assurance that there will be no further death as students undergo Azithromycin, a broad spectrum antibiotics medication. The students completed the 3-dose medication they started on Tuesday on Thursday.
