The Head of government's Advisory Committee on COVID-19 Professor Salim Abdool Karim says statistics seem to indicate that the vast majority of children who contract the coronavirus suffer only mild symptoms.
His statement comes after Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga announced on Tuesday night that Grade 7 and 12 learners would
return to school on the first of next month in a phased in approach.
Professor Karim has reassured parents that learners will be safe when they return to school.
