All schools were reopened in Afghanistan five months after they were shut down following the spread of COVID-19 in the country.
Based on the government’s reopening strategy, the private schools will be allowed to resume their regular schooling from the first grade to grade 12, while in state-run schools only students in the 10th, 11th and 12th grades will be allowed to resume studies.
TOLOnews reporter Massoud Ansar visited two schools in Kabul and reported that there are still concerns among the children and the staff of being infected with COVID-19 because of the lack of santizers and other health equipment.
“We waited a long time for schools to reopen, this is a good news,” said Samira, a student of Zarghoona High School in Kabul.
“We don’t have sanitizers and disinfection materials, we are waiting for relevant organizations to help us,” said Nasreen Nawrozi, the principle of Zarghoona High School.
