The nation has opened up the examination classes today, this is in line with President Edgar Lungu’s directive that such grades should open so that the students are not disadvantaged.

Despite the coronavirus pandemic still ravaging the nation, Lungu in one of his national address on the pandemic said exam grades should open today.

However, the call to open schools was met with mixed reactions, some sections of the society saying it was too early for the move.

Others said most schools, especially in the rural areas were not ready, as they lack enough Protective Equipment (PEs).

Meanwhile, Chisonso Simwanza, went down on the ground and reports that more still need to be done to safeguard the health of students and teachers.

“This is Lubuto Secondary School. I took time this morning at 07:30hrs to check on the Preparedness and Safety of our children, against Covid 19. More needs to be done, Already on this very first day,” Shimwanza reports.

Simwanza raised the following issues, social distancing is not being observed, the school has only 1 thermometer, saying this is resulting in long queues outside the school gate.

Simwanza further explained; “I saw a lot of hugs amongst school children. I am happy the hand washing point is in place I hope its not the only one.”

Simwanza further reported that the authorities should do more in educating the boys and girls before we are hit by this devil called covid 19.
