Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has said there is no plan to resume offline classes in Delhi schools as yet. He said a third wave of Covid infections is looming and the government is not going to risk the health of children.
During an interaction with the media today, Chief Minister Kejriwal was asked if the Delhi government is planning to resume offline classes in schools, as is being done in several states, including the attached Haryana.
"No, going by global trends, the third wave (of Covid infections) will come. So, we will not put children at risk till the vaccination of the whole population is completed," the Chief Minister replied.
The daily Covid case counts in the national capital have remained below the 100 mark for about two weeks now, encouraging the government to ease restrictions put in place in the wake of the deadly second wave of infections.
As per the state health statement issued today, Delhi recorded 72 new Covid cases, one death and a positivity rate of 0.10 per cent over the past 24 hours. The number of active cases stands at 671.
