Sindh Health Minister Dr. Azra Fazal Pechuho has opposed the reopening of schools in the Sindh province and other parts of the country from next month.
According to the details, in a statement, Dr. Azra Fazal Pechuho said that schools across the country should not be opened in rush until tackling the coronavirus pandemic completely.
She added that primary and middle school children cannot be prevented from socializing nor can it be ensured that they follow standard operating procedures (SOPs).
Earlier Sindh government decided to take action against private schools.
Directorate of Private Institutions Sindh said that action would be taken against any school which would open before the announcement of the government.
The Registrar Directorate of Private Institutions Sindh will inspect the schools in the South District of Karachi.
Earlier, Sindh Education Minister Saeed Ghani had said that he would take stern action against those who opened schools.
He had said that FIRs would be registered against those who opened all private schools as this would endanger our children and therefore cases would be registered against them under the Corona Act.
He further said that the registration of private schools which are open across the province should be canceled immediately as no one will be allowed to play with the lives of the children.
