Students head home after schools closed following the coronavirus pandemic.

The government, through the Ministry of Health on Thursday the 22nd of October 2020, broke the silence regarding school closure following the recent spike in Covid-19 cases in the country.

Speaking during the daily Covid-19 briefing, health CAS Dr Mercy Mwangangi assured parents not to worry about the rising cases. She further added that the government knew some students would contract the virus.

The CAS also reassured stakeholders that the MoH had sent out a team to the affected schools to determine the extent of the infections.

“We have a team of doctors that we have sent to the ministry of education, and after assessment, we will be able to know the measures that can be put in place to ensure that the issue is under control,” Mwangangi stated.

The health CS was speaking following the recent closure of Tononoka High School and Star of the Sea Highschool after some teachers got the virus.

No mass closure.

Zack Kinuthia, Education CAS, also repeated Mwangangi’s words further noting there won’t be mass closure of schools. He further added that the ministry would deal with the cases as they come.

“Schools will not be closed based on the cases in Mombasa. If a school is found to be a threat, we close the school, or the student is isolated, and learning will continue,” CAS Kinuthia said.

Further adding,

“It would be a problem if all the schools reported cases, but as the situation stands now, schools will not be closed. However, the ministry will keep observing the trends very closely.”

Kinuthia further reassured parents that the government is on the lookout and is in control of the situation.
