Schools in Kenya to Reopen in September

NAIROBI, Kenya- Kenya's education minister has said schools will reopen in September and announced the measures to be put in place to prevent the spread of the coronavirus among students.

Education Minister George Magoha made the announcement despite health experts predicting that coronavirus infections will peak in Kenya between August and September.

Kenya so far has reported 128 virus-related deaths from 4,952 confirmed cases.

Magoha says classes will be limited to 15 to 20 students and schools will provide two face masks to each student to prevent infections.

Kenyans reacted furiously to the announcement. Some wondered where students will study if classes are limited to 15, noting that classes in public schools have more than 40 students and some even 100.

They also wondered how children will maintain social distance on school buses and during recess breaks.
