MAPUTO, July 8 (Xinhua) -- Schools in Mozambique are scheduled to start reopening by July 27, first for grade-12 students and those who attend teacher-training courses, Radio Mozambique (RM) reported on Wednesday.

"We are talking about 171 schools teaching grade-12 students and 19 teachers-training institutes with conditions, and without water and sanitation problems, which will resume (classes) in this first phase," the national radio station quoted government spokesman Filimao Suazi as speaking.

Schools were closed in Mozambique on March 23 as part of the country's initial response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to the RM, the Council of Ministers on Wednesday decided that classes will resume face-to-face teaching activities in the institutions that can guarantee the protection of students and staff. Enditem
