The National Action for Quality Education in Zambia NAQEZ has called on government to fully equip schools with covid19 preventive materials following the 50 positive cases that have been recorded among learners.

NAQEZ Executive Director Aaron Chansa says the positive cases entail that both the ministry of Health and General Education have to tighten health systems in schools.

Mr. Chansa has told Christian voice news that the ministry of health should therefore ensure that all schools are provided with masks, hand sanitizers and other covid19 preventive materials to protect learners and teachers.

He said that if the situation is not adequately addressed, schools’ risk being closed, a situation that he said will negatively the school calendar.

He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.
