About 500 pupils have been put into quarantine after a coronavirus outbreak at a school in South Africa’s Eastern Cape province.

A total of 98 pupils tested positive at the secondary school in the town of Burgersdorp, and officials say they fear the virus may have spread more widely into the community.

The authorities say the outbreak started when two students who had tested positive failed to inform the school, and blame a lack of mask wearing and social distancing.
