Kenya’s health ministry has warned school administrators against spraying students with disinfectants as part of measures to curb the spread of coronavirus.

Final year students in primary and secondary schools resumed learning on Monday and a video showing schoolgirls queuing to be sprayed went viral on social media sparking uproar.

The ministry’s administrative secretary, Rashid Aman, said the chemicals used were not suitable for human beings directing schools not to spray students.

The World Health Organization guidelines do not recommend the spraying of individuals as it is harmful to their health.
