President Museveni on March 18th 2020 ordered for the closure of schools and suspended religious gatherings across the country in attempt to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
Although there has not been any confirmed case of coronavirus by then, President Museveni said all primary and secondary schools, university and other institutions of learning should close right away from Friday, March 20th 2020.
“It is wise that we temporary remove these concentration points to prevent the spread of coronavirus. All these institutions, without exception should close so that we deny this virus high concentration. We don’t want the virus to find dry grass ready for ignition,” Mr Museveni said.
A number of Education stake holders have had numerous discussions on whether the institutions should be reopened or call for a dead year.
