Despite the continuous threat of the widespread Meningococcal disease in the country, the Coca Cola Games will go ahead as schedule.

The Ministry of Health however has advised the Games organizers to maintain cleanliness to avoid the spread of the disease during the games.

Health Minister Rosy Akbar says there’s a high risk of the spread of the disease at the games and the onus is on the organizers to ensure that students are well protected.

“Basically my message to the teachers, students and organisers will be to ensure that children are well advised about the impacts of sharing water bottles, juice, food and i am sure that common sense will prevail and people will abstain from doing this”

Akbar is calling on the organizers to ensure that the safety of students is paramount.

Ministry of Health officials are expected to provide surveillance during the games to ensure students are safe.
