Opening schools even under the strict conditions of social distancing as set out by the department is absurd. The covid-19 command council together with the minister of education is sending our children and teachers into a battlefield with the invisible enemy while they will sit back and watch the outcome of their game. Looking at the current curve should not be a deciding factor because so far we managed to keep the spread low, but with stage 4 we should expect a very different picture in four weeks time. The same council who are sending our kids to school are the ones who predict the climax to be in September. Does it make any sense filling up the schools as we enter the climax of this deadly pandemic? In the US, 44 states of this first world country today declared schools closed for the remainder of this year. In brave South Africa we have done testing on only 0.2 of the population. It’s like we haven’t even done testing at all. Then the world is also struggling with inaccurate tests all over. I am thinking of our children staying in shacks and squatter camps and those who got single parents struggling with HIV Aids, TB etc. If those single parents or grandma guardian pass away, where are those children going to? Not if but when our teachers start to get infected during the peak, what then? I don't think the minister gave this decision the necessary consideration it deserves. Please delay sending our kids and teachers to the battlefield until they stand a better chance of surviving, minister Angie Motshekga.
