The Coronavirus pandemic has continued to wreak havoc across the world, infecting close to a million people and killing thousands of others.
The effects are far-reaching and devastating. In Kenya, over 100 people have tested positive for the virus, three have died and three have recovered.
The government has warned of more infections and put in a raft of measures aimed to curb further spread of the virus. One of them is closure of all learning institutions across the country.
Definitely this will affect the academic calendar for every learner in the country, especially those looking forward to sitting for their national exams later on in the year.
The government has since urged media houses to help learners continue with their education while at home, by providing learning sessions approved by the relevant stakeholders in the education sector.
And this is exactly what Viusasa is offering you the learner, parent/guardian and the teacher.
