New Delhi: It is now clear and loud. No schools will be open in Delhi till vaccine is available. This has been reiterated by Manish Sisodia, the Deputy Chief Minister cum Education Minister of Delhi Government.
Earlier, schools were allowed to call students from Class 9 to 12 to school voluntarily from September 21. However, the Delhi government decided against it. Delhi recorded 4,454 fresh Covid-19 cases on Monday and a positivity rate of 11.94 percent while 121 more fatalities pushed the death toll to 8,512, authorities said.
“We keep getting feedback from parents that they are really concerned about whether it is safe to reopen schools. It is not. Wherever schools have reopened, Covid-19 cases among children have risen. So we have decided that as of now schools in the national capital will not reopen. They will continue to be closed till further orders,” he had said, as per PTI reports.
