There are several restrictions being implemented to curb the spread of the coronavirus in Pakistan as cases continue to rise across the country during the second wave of the deadly disease.
The Federal Government announced a complete ban on indoor weddings and large public gathers while only allowing marriage functions to take place at outdoor venues with a an upper limit of 300 people (doesn’t make sense, but sure).
Furthermore, the National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) is recommending early and extended winter vacations for schools to tackle the rising number coronavirus cases in educational institutions.
However, some provincial education minister seem to be against the idea of a complete closure to avoid loss of education and make up for time wasted during the previous lockdown.
Punjab education minister Murad Raas has stated that if the decision is made to close schools in Punjab, there will be no summer vacations next year to make up for the loss of education.
However, he said that he will push his views to keep schools open in the meeting of all education minister and the National Command and Operations Centre (NCOC) tomorrow (23rd November).
