Schools and Colleges Reopen In Delhi, 4 Other States As Covid Cases Drop


Schools in Delhi and four other cities have restarted from Monday after a swell in Covid cases which had led to their closure in December. 

Physical classes for classes 9 to 12 resumed today in Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Kerala, Odisha, and Bihar.  In Delhi, classes for Nursery to standard 8 will resume on February 14. Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia blazoned that online class for scholars would also continue in the public capital.

The Centre had last week said that district with a positivity rate lower than 5 percent could resume Schools, but the decision would rest with the state governments. Noting that the epidemic situation has bettered and there has been a harmonious decline in new COVID-19 cases, NITI Aayog Member (Health) V K Paul had said” we have further confidence now to go in the direction of continuing Schools”. Schools in Delhi were compactly restarted before being closed again on December 28 last time because of the third surge of COVID-19 driven by the Omicron variant. 

On Sunday, Delhi reported 1,410 new COVID-19 cases with the positivity rate declining to 2.4 percent.
