KARACHI: The Sindh Government spokesperson Murtaza Wahab has confirmed that Sindh schools will not open from August 15 despite the announcement made by the All Pakistan Private Schools Association.
The Government spokesperson said in a press conference, “No school in Sindh will open from August 15. We will not compromise on children’s health and will not allow private school administrations to do so either.“
Murtaza Wahab further urged people to follow precautionary measures since new coronavirus cases were still being reported stating that failure to do so may result in a deadlier outbreak.
According to the plan laid out by the Government, schools in Pakistan will open by September 15 on the basis that the coronavirus situation has improved and there is no danger to the lives of teachers and students.
The decision was taken earlier this month after a meeting of all provincial education ministers who decided that schools will open in September when conditions allow following strict standard operating procedures (SOPs).
