Education sector is one of the most areas that has been affected by Covid-19 pandemic. When the country reported its first case of corona, it propelled the president to reinforce all possible ways to prevent more infection in the country.
Some of the precautionary measures included implementation of curfews and lockdowns in the nation and kenyans were asked to observe the Covid-19 protocols such as wearing of face mask, regular hand washing and keeping social distance in all areas.
Following the rampant spread of the virus, the issue of social distancing in schools became a big challenge and therefore, the president ordered the closure of schools in the whole Nation until the curve was flattened and schools reopened in January 2021.
It was very unfortunately that again the country was hit by third wave of Covid-19 which has been found to be more dangerous after claiming lives of many kenyans. This again led to suspension of all physical learning while primary and secondary schools had been at home for second term holiday.
Basing on the recent data given by the ministry of health where the positivity rate is now ranging from 9.6% to 13% with less than a thousand people getting infected in a day, then it is my opinion that schools should be reopened and allow learners continue with their learning process.
University students have received their second semester loan allocation and most of them are worried that they might spend the money meant for schools fees and other school upkeep if schools may not resume next month.
My view is that the government should allow all school heads to put in place all the Covid-19 protocols in their schools in order to prepare for reopening. This is just my opinion and you might be having a similar one or quite different please drop yours, like comment and share.
