Uganda’s national taskforce charged with spearheading the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic is to review the reopening of schools after they were closed back in March following the outbreak of the virus in the country, a top government official said on Sunday.

Judith Nabakooba, minister of ICT and national guidance told reporters that President Yoweri Museveni instructed the taskforce to review the possibility of a phased reopening of schools, starting with candidate classes and clinical medical students.

The taskforce is also supposed to review the status of the remaining sectors that are still closed like tourism, reopening of Entebbe International Airport among others.

Nabakooba said the team is supposed to report back to the president early next week and thereafter he will address the country on the next step forward.

Museveni in July said that government would before September make a final decision on whether to reopen schools.

He said the options are: open school starting with candidate classes or declare a dead year.

He said that in the meantime, government is looking at remote learning through radio and television as being an alternative.

According to the ministry of health, Uganda as of Friday had a cumulative total of 2,847 COVID-19 cases, 1,288 recoveries and 29 deaths since the index case was registered on March 21.
