Covid-19: 256 Prince Edward School students tested, six test positive


At least six form six students at Prince Edward School have tested positive for Covid-19 following mass testing of students who resumed learning on March 22.

Zimbabwean schools reopen in a phased manner after a two-month national lockdown.

However, many schools are not testing students before commencement of classes.

Prince Edward School, which is among the few schools to have taken the precautionary measure of testing students, told parents on Thursday that the affected students had been placed into quarantine while awaiting instructions from the ministry of Information.

“Prince Edward School boarders were sent for Covid-19 testing at Parirenyatwa taking advantage of the free PCR testing being availed by the Higher Life Foundation,” the school’s Headmaster Agrippa Sora said in a memo to parents.

“This was done as a precautionary measure. Unfortunately, the first batch of results has indicated that seven 6 Upper boarders tested positive for Covid-19. The rest of the results are still to come but all the 256 boarders were tested with the last test done on Wednesday 24 March 2021,” he added.

The school, said all relevant authorities have been informed “and it is now up to parents to continue bringing their boys to school while waiting for further instructions.”

“Our boys will fight this and we are hopefully they be back into the fold after the mandatory eight days. We will continue testing all our students,” Sora said.

Examination classes commenced on March 15, throughout the country while other students resumed learning on March 22.

Government has said school attendance will be on a rotational basis to avoid overcrowding in line with Covid-19 guidelines, with pupils expected to employ virtual learning on days that they are not at school.

President Emmerson Mnangagwa reopened the economy earlier this month on condition that businesses and individuals adhere to national and World Health Organization Covid-19 guidelines.
