Are schools safe to re-open sighting the steady spike in Covid-19 infections and deaths across 254?

 Are schools safe to re-open despite the steady rise in Covid-19 infections and fatalities across Kenya?

This should be the big question for Education CS Magoha, education stakeholders, and parents amidst worrying news from Busia county.


It is reported that 52 students, 6 teachers, and 2 subordinate staff have tested positive for Covid-19 at Kolanya Boys High school.

The 60 Covid-19 infections at the school were diagnosed from 100 samples that were randomly picked at the school.

Busia county governor Sopeter Ojamong confirmed the cases by addressing the press.

The infected persons are said to have been isolated within the school premises as they receive the necessary medical attention as the rest of the students and stuff too have been quarantined within the school compound.

This comes in light of Mr. Magoha’s determination to fully re-open the remaining schools despite the spike in Covid-19 cases in schools.

The recent rise in covid-19 infections and fatalities has forced Kilifi and Bungoma county assemblies to shut down in fear of a further rise in Covid-19 cases.

This begs the big question! Are schools in Kenya well prepared and ready to re-open at the moment against the backdrop of shot up in Covid-19 infections in Kenya?
