South Sudan: Schools To Reopen After One-year Closure

Learning institutions in South Sudan will reopen on 3 May after a year of closure because of coronavirus. This information comes after the government said the country is witnessing a “significant decline” in virus cases.

Learning institutions in the country were closed down in March last year as a measure to curb the spread of corona virus.

Finalists in primary and secondary schools were allowed to resume classes in October to prepare for national examinations.

South Sudan’s Vice-President for Service Cluster Hussein Abdelbagi Akol said the national task force had revived the data and seen a decline in infections hence the decision to reopen all schools.

Education Minister Awut Deng Acuil said there were recommendations for schools to provide learners and teachers with hand washing facilities, sanitisers and face masks to keep them safe while at school.
