A day after schools reopened in Sindh, the provincial government says it might close the schools once more if the coronavirus cases kept on rising.
Parents who do not want to send their children to schools can refrain from it. Also, the administration can’t ensure SOPs’ implementation; the parents should play their part in it as well,
According to the education minister of Sindh, the schools were only allowed to function at 50% capacity in a bid to reduce the spread of the novel coronavirus and that the government had conducted COVID tests in the schools and colleges before they reopened.
It is said that four colleges had been shut down due to the high number of cases. The positivity rate in colleges stands at 1.9%, while it is at 5.9% in schools.
The minister also added that the government had conducted 11,845 tests in the province’s schools’ and from them, 546 came positive.
As the minister, I want the education department to improve.
