Uganda Govt Faces Some Hurdles in Plan to Reopen Schools

Uganda will go ahead with its planned re-opening of the economy, despite recording more than 150 Covid-19 cases in three days, President Yoweri Museveni has said. The partial reopening of schools has been postponed for another one month but the president said that "children must continue studying under the distance learning programmes" on televisions and radio. The government will purchase over 137,000 television sets if they are to facilitate distance learning as proposed by the president.
