The Zimbabwe government has postponed the re-opening of schools which was scheduled for the end of this month citing a spike in coronavirus cases.
The decision to postpone the reopening of schools was made on Tuesday after the cabinet met for their weekly meeting. The cabinet said that the re-opening of schools shall be deferred pending a review of the situation. However, the writing of public examinations has been given a green light to go ahead.
The cabinet also resolved to “tighten” the Covid-19 lockdown measures and enforce “localised restrictions” in the “hotspots” of Harare and Bulawayo. Any further opening of the economy has been halted.
