Look, I can see why they closed the schools in the beginning and although it was premature things were getting scary globally. A month later they should have realised that there was not much point in closing all the schools (especially private and ECD's). At 4 months we know that its ridiculous to keep the schools closed.Definitely no. Children are the least vulnerable group. Closing schools from the beginning was idiotic. A child litterally has a much bigger chance of dying on the way to school than dying from Covid, yet we all take that risk when we put our children in the car with us. Mankind has become utterly retarded.
At worst they should consider it on a province by province basis. There may be a case for some parts of the country to still look at a hard lock down for a week or so but the rest should be de-escalating. I can't see why schools are closed at all in the smaller provinces. Especially because of the feeding schemes and how so many of these kids are missing out on that. Its neglect pure and simple.
