Pakistan could soon reopen its educational institutions says The National Command Operation Centre (NCOC), the national authority leading the charge against Coronavirus. The authority has intimated a top to bottom approach for the start for the fall semester with universities opening first, then colleges and then finally schools. That is to say precautions will be taken as “timings of various institutions would be staggered and activities that involve contact and mass gatherings, including co-curricular activities, would be suspended.”
Educational institutions in Pakistan to reopen
NCOC held a meeting this Thursday with a single point agenda of reopening the educational institutions. Representatives of the educational fraternity were invited to attend the meeting and were informed as to the challenges and requirements for the reopening. The reopened institutions would be subject to stringent anti-coronavirus standards created after consultations with Experts on the subject. The standards include common measures such as wearing masks, social distancing and hand washing protocols.
