More Than 180 Learners At Eastern Cape School Test Positive for COVID-19

180 and more learners from Makaula Senior Secondary School, located in Mount Frere in the Eastern Cape have tested positive for COVID-19.

We fear what will happen when these school kids bring the virus home to their aged parents.

The provincial Health Department spokesperson, Sizwe Kupelo says: “The intention is to rescue those who have not tested positive. We are also going to do the risk analysis and look at their contacts. We are going to look into all the necessary precautions that we have to take now and put this situation under control”

Kupelo has appeals to all members of the public to take covid-19 seriously by being cautious. 

Chris Mdingi who is provincial secretary of the The South African Democratic Teachers’ Union (SADTU), says the union does not take kindly to the rise of infections in schools. 

SADTU has repeatedly been calling for schools to close, and has been requesting meetings with the education department.

“We have been receiving reports from schools of the PPE that did not reach the schools on time. The quality of those have been questionable. Even the issue of water that has been promised to be delivered, water tanks while they have not been delivered as promised,” Chris Mdingi said.

In a letter addressed to Themba Kojana, superintendent-general of the provincial education department, the union wrote:

“We call upon our Eastern Cape department of education to close the schools with immediate effect until the department is ready‚ as life matters to most of us‚” 

The union is concerned about ablution facilities, shortage of personal protection equipment and water supply in schools.

The union will have a meeting today with the Department in order to discuss a way forward for schools in the Eastern Cape.

Nationally there are 101 590 Covid-19 cases,  53 444 recoveries with a total of 1991 people succumbing to the virus. is passionate about being one of the COVID-19 solution providers in this real war against COVID-19. will be bringing more technological innovations for help contain and manage the spread of COVID-19, join us in this war and earn a commission distributing the “weapons” of PPE tools and technologies from our Earn A Good Living Programme helping South Africa be safe again.
