Afghanistan Reopens Schools After 5 Months

All schools were reopened in Afghanistan five months after they were shutdown following the spread of COVID-19 in the country.
 
Based on the government’s reopening strategy, the private schools will be allowed to resume their regular schooling from the first grade to grade 12, while in state-run schools only students in the 10th, 11th and 12th grades will be allowed to resume studies. 
 
TOLOnews reporter Massoud Ansar visited two schools in Kabul and reported that there are still concerns among the children and the staff of being infected with COVID-19 because of the lack of santizers and other health equipment.
 
“We waited a long time for schools to reopen, this is a good news,” said Samira, a student of Zarghoona High School in Kabul.
 
“We don’t have sanitizers and disinfection materials, we are waiting for relevant organizations to help us,” said Nasreen Nawrozi, the principle of Zarghoona High School.
 
“We are undertaking all necessary health measures, like using sanitizer and disinfection of the school buildings multiple times daily and social distancing,” said Mohammad Najman Zamani, a teacher in Kabul.
 
“The Ministry of Education will expand its monitoring and control in view of the current circumstances,” said Nooria Nuzhat, a spokeswoman for the Ministry of Education.
 
“Students must respect social distancing and they should always wear face masks,” said Maryam, a teacher.
 
Some pupils who study in government schools meanwhile expressed their anger over the government's decision to not open their schools.
 
“We hope that our schools are reopened soon so that we can get educated,” said Surya, a student in 5th grade in a government school.
