India and its neighbours should fully reopen schools to address the interrupted education of more than 400 million children whose classrooms were shut by the coronavirus pandemic, Unicef said on Thursday, with a top official warning the consequences could last decades.
The health experts said that based on studies and research issued by the World Health Organisation (WHO), it indicates that people who received a booster dose were less infected than those who did not receive the booster dose even if they were exposed to mild symptoms.
Negative result of COVID-19 test for a period no longer than 96 hours has been mandated for all students from 12 years and above, educational and administrative staff, and service providers from the first school day.
The authorities said that the mandatory mask is maintained inside closed spaces, and the option of remote learning and work is available for students and administrative and educational staff.
The KHDA tweeted on Friday, “Because of the help and cooperation of parents, educators and students, PE classes, gatherings, trips and extracurricular activities will be resumed as of Jan.31.”
