Voi primary school in Taita Taveta County has closed following the shock of three teachers testing positive for Covid-19. At least 27 pupils have been put on quarantine according to the Education Ministry.
The closing of the learning institution was confirmed by the Taita Taveta County Education Director Samson Wanjohi.
This comes just a day after another shocking revelation by Busia County Governor Sosperter that a total of 60 students, teachers and support staff had contracted the virus.
The Education ministry has maintained that schools will not be reclosed due to the coronavirus case increase arguing that learners are safer in schools than at home.
The reopening date for the rest of learners remains unknown even as the education task force is yet to decide and update the country on what is to follow.
Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers has been urging the state to shut down schools following the increased infection rates among learners, teachers and non-teaching staffs.
