Delhi Schools to Reopen from Sept 1

The Delhi government has announced the opening of schools in Delhi from September 1. The government is preparing to open schools in Delhi in a phased manner. In the first phase, it has been announced to open schools for classes IX to XII.

In such a situation, the big question is also that what will happen to the campaign started by the government to run the vaccination drive in the schools which were closed during the Corona period? Apart from vaccination, school premises in Delhi are also being used for distribution of ration. However, now clearing the picture on this, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has said that the schools where the work of distributing ration and vaccination is going on will continue.

More than 50% vaccination in Delhi government schools

The vaccine is being administered at more than 900 government vaccination sites in Delhi, including government schools, government hospitals and dispensaries. According to the information, more than 50 percent of the vaccinations in these vaccination sites are being run in government schools of Delhi. In which the schools of Delhi Government and Municipal Corporation are included. Apart from this, work is being done to distribute ration in 272 government schools.

Since the beginning of Corona, schools in Delhi were used to distribute cooked food and dry ration. After the arrival of the vaccine, to speed up the vaccination drive, the Delhi government announced to start vaccination centers in the closed schools. In this way, infrastructure and staff of government schools have been continuously being used for Kovid services.

However, whether these services will continue even after the school reopens, has been made clear by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said that wherever the work of distributing ration and vaccination is going on in schools, it will continue. We will separate these places a little from the children so that the children do not come in their contact because now only four classes of classes are opening, so there is not much problem of space in the schools.

Delhi Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister Manish Sisodia said that wherever vaccination is going on in schools, we have done a complete review of it. There are some centers where more classrooms are being used for vaccination work. We will reduce the centers in such places, but because now schools are being opened for 9th to 12th only, then we have enough space. Vaccination centers in schools will continue to run as the classrooms are sufficient and new ones have also been built, so we do not have any shortage of rooms.

Significantly, so far more than 1 crore 30 lakh people have been vaccinated in Delhi, which includes both the first and second doses. At the same time, more than 30 lakh people have been given second doses. On Friday, when the record vaccination took place across the country, more than one and a half lakh people were vaccinated in Delhi on that day.

Is the Delhi government’s decision to open a school correct in the midst of increasing cases of corona in some states of the country and the possibility of a third wave of corona in the report of NITI Aayog? Responding to this, Chief Minister Arvind said that today the situation in Delhi is under control. At one time parents also had this concern, they used to say that we are worried about the children, do not open the school now. But now parents also come and say that early schools should be opened so that children can start their studies.

Right now 40 or 50 cases are coming in Delhi and we do 70 thousand tests daily. The situation is under control now but we will keep a constant watch on it. Schools are opening slowly, if there is a need to close again, then let’s see. If the situation remains normal, the third wave does not come, then it is a good thing that all the schools and colleges will open.

Regarding the opening of the school, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said that preparations are on for 1 September, schools, colleges and some institutions will open. We will issue SOP accordingly. No child will be compelled to come to school. If someone does not want to come to school and wants to do online class, then he will also be given the facility of online class.
