The Kenya government has said all schools will remain closed until January 2021 due to rising of COVID-19 cases in the country.

According to Kenya Minister for Education, George Magoha, said students would repeat a year as schools had closed in mid-March, three months after the school calendar had begun, the BBC reports.

“The 2020 school calendar year will be considered lost due to COVID-19 restrictions,” he said.

The decision would apply to public and private schools.

Final year exams, usually written in October and November, have also been cancelled.

Kenya has more than 8,000 confirmed cases of Coronavirus with at least 164 deaths.

On monday, President Uhuru Kenyatta announced reopening of the country, including the lifting of travel restrictions in the main cities of Nairobi and Mombasa.
