New Delhi [India], April 15 (ANI):The Arvind Kejriwal government will announce COVID-19 recommendations for schools on Friday, in response to worries about an increase in coronavirus cases in the national capital.
After a teacher and a student at a private school in South Delhi were discovered to be positive for COVID-19, other children in the same class were sent home, according to Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia. It is significant because, because of the low positive rate, schools began operating entirely offline on April 1, after all COVID-related restrictions were abolished on February 28. Although COVID instances have increased slightly, there has been no increase in hospitalizations, therefore we do not need to be concerned. There’s no need to panic, but you should be vigilant. We must learn to live with COVID because it exists. We will keep a close eye on the situation. “Tomorrow, a general rule will be implemented in schools, “Sisodia stated.
In the last 24 hours, 325 new COVID-19 cases were recorded in Delhi, with a case positive rate of 2.39 percent. In comparison to Wednesday, when 299 new COVID-19 cases were reported with a daily positive rate of 2.49 percent, there was an increase in COVID-19 cases.In response to the school fee increases, the Delhi Minister stated that the government has not allowed Delhi schools to raise their rates since 2015, and that private schools can now only raise their fees by 2–3%.
As a result of COVID, we have not allowed private schools to raise tuition since 2015, and we will continue to do so until 2020 as a result of COVID. However, we have recently permitted a small number of schools to increase their costs by 2% to 3%, “he added, adding that if schools raise fees on their own, action will be taken against them.
