CHINHOYI – Authorities at Chinhoyi High School have appealed for assistance from various stakeholders including the private sector and government after 57 pupils tested positive for the novel corona virus.

Day scholars were sent back home while those housed at the boarding hostels have been isolated in the hostels as the school administrators seek to deal with the outbreak that has hit the school.

On Thursday, the Covid-19 Provincial Taskforce convened a meeting with the school and the school’s Headmistress, Mary Nyeverengwa expressed concern about the safety of both students and staff because of shortages in Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) among other issues.

“The school is appealing for urgent assistance so that we can contain the situation. We are appealing for PPEs like facemasks, knapsacks for spraying disinfectants and fumigation,” said Nyeverengwa.

Government in September announced the phased re-opening of schools vowing measures had been put in place to ensure the the safety of students and teachers in schools.

However, the recent spike in Covid-19 cases has raised serious questions about the readiness of schools to remain open with some pushing that schools be closed again.
