With the students remaining to return to schools,many were hoping that teachers plus the students will be tested for Covid-19 before getting to classes but that seems to have changed. According to Ministry of Education PS Belio Kipsang, teachers might not get tested for Covid-19 before the learners are allowed back to class. The PS stated that the Covid-19 testing process would be very expensive as the government would be forced to procure and avail the testing kits for over 17 million individuals(teachers plus learners).
Speaking during the World Teachers day, PS Belio Kipsang said,as quoted, "We need over 17 million testing kits. We have over 15 million pupils in primary schools, 160,000 in teachers training colleges and technical institutions and over 400,000 teachers. This will be very expensive for the government to procure and avail the kits." These news caught people unexpectedly as previously Ministry of Education CS, George Magoha, had stated that teachers and learners would be tested before getting to school but it seems that thermo guns will be used as an alternative.
