Coronavirus disease was reported in last year in mid March. The deadly virus made President Uhuru Kenyatta to close all the learning institutions in the country. This was in accordance with the measures and guidelines of the World Health Organization. School going children had to wait for nearly 9 months before resuming face to face learning this year after covid-19 cases reduced.

In the recent weeks, Kenya has seen a rapid rise in coronavirus cases something that has been termed as the third wave of covid-19. The number of infections and deaths has been high throughout the last two weeks. Today, according to the data from the Ministry of Health headed by Mutahi Kagwe 911 people have tested positive for covid-19 with 18 deaths in the last 24 hours.

In my view if schools will be opened in May there will be a likelihood of more infections across the country. This is because school going children will be moving to their schools. Take an example of a child learning in Mombasa from Kisii County. Obviously, in the process of traveling the learner will come into contact with many people on the way thereby increasing the risk of getting infected.
