Older Students Return To Class In Tanzania

Some students in Tanzania are heading back to high schools and colleges for the first time in about two months, but will have to follow strict guidelines to ensure their safety from coronavirus.

The school calendar was interrupted in March following the outbreak of the virus.

Amid, what the government says is a decline in infections, colleges are reopening and final-year school students can return to school.

President John Magufuli has said he will consider reopening schools for younger pupils if the infection rate continues to decline.

Faustine Bee, the vice-chancellor of Dodoma University, said students had been told to wear face mask, wash hands and social distance.
