The Minister of Education, Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh, has said the reopening of schools in Ghana will be dependent largely on how the coronavirus behaves in the country.
He explained that the decision will be based on the available science and data on the Covid-19 situation in the country.
Asked when schools will resume while speaking in an interview with Belinda Addardey, well responsive to the name, Berla Mundi, on the COVID-19 360 on TV3 Thursday, August 13,2020. Dr Opoku Prempeh said, “we will go back to school if the virus allows us.”
“So depending on the science and data, we will reopen schools. We reopened schools for final years as they maintain social distancing,” he said on the COVID-19 360 show.
“Had it not been that the government was sound of what it was doing they would have given up on all that they were doing in their quest to send the final years to school. All the people saying we should resume schools, those people will not be around if we resume and an incident occurs” he said.
For him, Ghanaians must be very cautious of this virus and not take the coronavirus likely at all. The virus is still there and our students will go to school at the right time.
What do you think, do you think the students will go back to school very soon than we all think. Leave your comments behind, I would love to hear from you.
