For a few days now, there has been a lot of news about covid cases rising in the country, a school in Sector 40, Noida and two schools in Ghaziabad have decided to shut their schools until monday since around 20 covid cases were detected in total amongst the students and teachers. Majority of these covid cases (13) were found at Khaitan School, Noida.
The detection of these cases and the closing of schools yet again, got a lot of parents and students worried about the reopening because these schools have decided to opt for online mode of education until the situation resolves. Yet another suspension of offline classes has created a lot of doubts amongst people about the effect it is going to have on students’ education until the suspension is lifted.
Dr R.K Gupta, the district surveillance officer, said that ‘they have set up camps near the school premises where rapid antigen tests will be available, also they made sure that all of these schools were sanitized after the detection of these cases.’ The schools have asked the parents to monitor the health status of their children and keep the respective school updated.
