Calls to suspend schooling grow as COVID-19 surfaces in classrooms (South Africa)

“Less than two weeks after schools reopened in South Africa, there are growing calls to suspend schooling as many schools record positive COVID-19 cases. ‘We have seen a rise in infections at a high speed in all provinces since the reopening of schools,’ said Kabelo Mahlobogwane, spokesperson for the Education Union of South Africa (EUSA). EUSA said it was concerned that the Department of Basic Education ignored warnings not to reopen schools until September 2020.”
