When will schools reopen in India? Dr. VK Paul explains




“A lot of things need to be considered while deciding on reopening schools, it’s a different topic entirely. This is a question that keeps coming up in the govt system,” said Dr VK Paul, Niti Aayog (health) member in an interaction with media. “There are teachers, helpers. We must take every aspect into consideration before deciding on when to open the schools,” he added. “We don’t want to put our children, teachers in that situation unless we have more confidence that the pandemic won’t harm us. But as vaccination coverages widen, teachers get vaccinated, we change habits and implement social distancing in everyday lives then there should come a time when schools can certainly reopen,” he explained.
