like we said Senegal has overdue the start again of schools,
after weeks of shutdown due to the deadly disease. Senegal has recorded 3,739 positive COVID-19 cases since the start of the outbreak, with 43 deaths.
An education ministry statement said teachers tested affirmative for coronavirus in Ziguinchor, in the Casamance area, south of the country.
It said Senegal’s President Macky Sall determined to “postpone the restart of classes until a later date, in order to keep away from any risk of the virus dispersal in schools.”
The government began bussing teachers from the capital Dakar to schools in the other regions last week in grounding for schools to reopen.
The bureau said in a separate statement
that the bussing has been balanced\
until supplementary notice.
The Senegal was the most recent country in the West and Central Africa region to plan restarting schools even with a continuing rise in coronavirus cases.
Cameroon, which has recorded 6,397 coronavirus issues and nearly 200 deaths, resumed classes with the government saying it had put in place health protection measures including usual hand-washing, temperature checks and required wearing of masks.
Also Schools also resumed in world’s top cocoa grower Ivory Coast last week, and in neighboring Burkina Faso on Monday.
