Some Ghanaian students who arrived in the country from Russia have tested positive for the novel coronavirus disease.
This was disclosed by a former President of the National Union of Students in Russia, Roland Abiti Addo, in an interview on Campus Exclusive.
He indicated that the test results of some of the evacuees came back positive with traces of the COVID-19 strains in their fluid samples.
Roland Addo could, however, not tell the specific number of students who had been infected with the disease.
The infected persons have been taken to isolation centres to begin receiving treatment.
Meanwhile, UniversNews gathers that some of the students, including the twelve from University of Ghana are awaiting their results as they had their samples taken on Monday, August 17, 2020.
