In the light of Coronavirus epidemic, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has said that schools across the national capital would be reopened only after thorough review of the situation. He also added that the state government won’t reopen schools in Delhi until it is convinced about significant improvement in the Corona case numbers.
Delhi CM reassured parents and students, who have all been worried about the rumours and speculative reports about reopening of schools.
Kejriwal said that the situation around the pandemic has seen a lot of improvement over the last few months with number of COVDI-19 active cases coming down drastically. He also added that situation in the city is quite under control as compared to what it was two months back and thanked all the corona warriors and all stakeholders including the Central Government of their assistance in handling the situation.
The CM also said the safety and the health of schoolchildren are very important to the government. “I meet people and get messages from them asking not to open schools. I want to assure them that we care about their children as much as they do. Unless fully convinced, we are not going to open the schools,” he added.
