    Administration must be very strict, immediately stop all functions at religious places. Administration is worried about Mall, Restaurants , Club, swinging pools, and not but not least educational institutions. AND NOT RELIGIOUS GATHERING.

    DC sir cases have crossed 1000 today. You have decided not to close schools to keep the education mafia happy . This is a shocking decision by an educated person like you. You need see both sides of the coin. You met the education lobby and took a silly decision. You should have involved the parents as well as to know the ground reality. In reality no testing is done in schools specially private. So how is it possible to decide 5 percent infections. Which department is checking this. Schools will never report any cases. If schools are closed then they have a problem to collect fees. It is not the children who have a problem. The reality is that a lot of children in schools are sick and they are asked to stay home and these children return back to spreading infection to others. Most children are asymptomatic but silently spreading COVID in their classes and homes. So your logic of 5 percent is senseless.The wisest thing to do now is to close schools temporarily till the COVID peak is over. Pls don't take one-sided decisions. We parents are in a better position to bring out the reality.
