South Sudan’s Education Minister Awut Deng Acuil has threatened to close schools that violate the Covid-19 public health protocols.
The warning comes after some schools were inspected and found not to have hand washing facilities and learners were not wearing masks.
Ms Acuil cited the rising coronavirus cases in neighbouring countries as the reason why school administrators need to enforce all regulations.
She recommended that classes be split into small sizes to enable learners to observe social distancing.
Ms Acuil also appealed to parents to ensure the guidelines are being followed in schools.
