Delhi Schools Reopening
Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced that the reopening decision will be announced only if the Coronavirus cases comes under control.
“Across the world, wherever schools were opened experimentally, coronavirus spread among children. We cannot think of opening schools till COVID-19 is under control,” Mr Kejriwal told NDTV in an interview.
“Online education for classes may be possible, but going to school physically for education in form of interaction, sports, activities and labs cannot be substituted. So, that will have to return someday,” the chief minister added.
