Children returning to school in Guinea after a three month closure due to Ebola are learning how to stay safe from the deadly disease, the UN Children's Fund says.

A protocol has been developed by UNICEF and its partners with safety measures such as daily temperature screening, encouraging handwashing and minimizing physical contact.

Schools officially reopened on 19 January in the West African nation after missing the normal start of the academic year which is in October.

Sayo Aoki, UNICEF Education Specialist in Ebola Emergencies spoke to Jocelyne Sambira about efforts being made to make these schools safe.
