Covid-19: Closing Down Schools Is A Coward Way of Solving Problems – Health Minister



Minister of Health, Kwaku Agyemang has stressed that government won’t be under pressure to shutdown schools as that will be a coward way of solving the Covid-19 menace in SHSs.

According to him, the current number of cases does not call for a shutdown as it can be controlled.

“Closing down schools is defeatist and a cowardly person’s approach to solving problems,” the minister told journalists after touring some hospital projects in the Ashanti region.

“When we are confronted with problems, we don’t go back and say we have withdrawn, but fight and overcome them. Look elsewhere especially, America where the numbers are huge but they are opening schools,” he added.

He explained that no one knows when the virus will end therefore closing down schools won’t be the best decision.

“We will fight the disease and do things that would solve the challenges that we have to protect the children. We all care about them because some of us have kids in the senior high schools,” he assured.
