Recently the government announced to reopen educational institutions from 15th starting from university, college and matric students as they already suffered a lot of academic loss. The classes of secondary school students will commence from 23rd September after checking the whole situation. But it seems that situation is getting worse as government started shutting down schools in several areas for not following SOPs which caused increase in number of COVID-19 infections.

It has been seen that many teachers and staff members tested positive for COVID-19. In alone KPK over 80+ teachers has been tested positive of COVID-19 which has eventually caused a feeling of disbelieve amongst the parent. Government immediately acted against it and closed 16 institutions there. While one in Islamabad and five in Kashmir are also sealed due to their recklessness. Many institutions in Sindh and Punjab are also closed for not complying to the SOPs. Even institute of business and administration in Karachi had also been closed for two days started from Thursday.

Now Sindh Minister or education and Labor announced that schools which were commencing from 23rd will now be delayed for another week as institutions are not taking SOPs seriously. Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah strictly emphasized on the issue and asked the relevant authorities to take strict action against those who aren’t following SOPs.

Well! we can just hope that institutions across the country take this matter seriously otherwise they will have to face both financial and academic loss.
