Kumasi Academy fumigated over swine flu

Kumasi Academy Senior High School has been fumigated following an outbreak of Influenza A virus H1N1, commonly known as swine flu.

The fumigation exercise commenced with a massive clean up of the school which was then followed by general and viral fumigation of the school.
The fumigation exercise comes following the death of 11 students of the school which has been attributed to the swine flu.

It covered all eight dormitories, 45 classrooms, science laboratory, dining and assembly halls, kitchen, lavatories and the sick bay of the school.

According to the contractor in charge of the fumigation exercise, Oscar Osei Appau, the fumigated areas will be congenial for habitation after a period of two hours.

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of OSCAPPA ventures said the fumigation will cater for the virus that has been detected in the school.
