Reopening Gone Wrong in US: Lesson to CS Magoha Concerning Reopening Amid Coronavirus Pandemic

School reopening is becoming one of the hardest decision ever amid the novel coronavirus pandemic that has affected millions of people across the globe. Previously, the Cabinet Secretary for education had hinted that he will be moving to reopen schools early than it was anticipated should the coronavirus cases continue showing a downward trend.

Different agencies have been warning that schools should only reopen once the virus has been totally suppressed at a community level. Including WHO, they have been insisting that schools should not reopen when cases are still high across the world.

Despite the warning, some countries across the globe have made a move in reopening schools despite a surge in cases related to the Covid-19.

University of Alabama in United States has recorded some 500 coronavirus just a week after reopening as it has been reported by The New York Times. In a statement, the Times said that the cases were among students and staff members after most of them bleached the health guidelines resulting to speedy infection rate.

This has attracted attention of many people claiming that the institution made a rush in reopening despite cases being still high in the nation. United States is the leading nation worldwide with over 5.8 million cases.

This comes after a new research on coronavirus transmission indicating that young people can also get infected as much as elderly people and can even transmit the virus more than them.
