Deputy Minister of Information, Pius Hadzide has said that the government was drawing lessons from countries that saw a sudden outburst of COVID-19 cases when schools were re-opened.
Germany, Israel, South Korea, France and other countries reopened schools amid the new coronavirus pandemic and spikes in new cases in the schools.
France for instance recorded 70 new cases in schools that were allowed to reopen.
Mr Hadzide who was speaking in an interview with the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC), said "I think that we are drawing lessons and that is why we are taking the kind of steps we are taking."
According to him, some of the countries that opened earlier did not take the necessary steps at the beginning but said government would ensure that the preventive measures were followed.
President Akufo-Addo in an address to the nation on Sunday, May 31, 2020, directed all final year students writing exit examinations to go back to school.
The directive formed part of measures taken by government to ease restrictions imposed on public and social gatherings to curb the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic in Ghana.
Now religions meetings could be held but members meeting should not exceed 100 while the meeting itself should not last over an hour, according to President Akufo-Addo.
So far, 38 people have died from the disease, while 2,986 have recovered from the sickness. There still remain a total of 5,273 active cases.
