With Covid-19 Cases Increasing, Is It Safe To Open Schools Now?

There have been unconfirmed rumors that schools may start operating by the end of this month. The ministry of Education was tasked to meet with the Covid-19 task force to discuss the possibility of opening schools. The president promised that schools would resume by the end of September.

The ministry of health has just confirmed that they actually made some blunders in some Covid-19 results. A total number of 679 samples were said to be vague. Some were positive and given negative results and the vice versa is true. This means that some people are in the community and yet they have Covid-19. Isn’t it risky to open schools at such a time? This is a question that only the government can answer.

Can schools implement these SOPs?

We must admit that much as they may emphasize social distance in schools that will be almost impossible. Some schools don’t have enough facilities to ensure that social distance happens. Definitely even the students may find it hard not to be near each other which is very risky and may cause a sharp rise in the Covid-19 cases.

Some parents are also not fine with letting their children go to school. In any case, we don’t know if the government will first carry out tests on all students to ensure that no one enters while they are positive. Whose expense will it be, the parents or the government?

Apparently the cost of Covid-19 test is shs150,000. With all these odds against the opening of schools, its the president to decide what we shall all comply with at the end of the day.
