CONCERNS RAISED OVER THE INCREASE OF COVID-19 POSITIVE CASES AT INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER LEARNING

There are concerns over the increase of Covid-19 positive cases at institutions of higher learning. This follows a cluster outbreak at the University of Pretoria where 115 students have tested positive for the virus since the 19th of March. While all organised student activities have been put on hold, the university says it does not expect classes to be disrupted as only a few first year students were allowed back into residence with the rest continuing with online classes. The Department of Higher Education's wellness and development centre has also warned of possible outbreaks across universities amid a looming third wave. Phumzile Mlangeni reports.
