Last week, Punjab’s Education Minister, Dr. Murad Raas, stated the resumption
of classes 9 to 12 in public and private educational institutes all across the area.
Taking to Twitter, Dr. Murad had composed that students of classes 9 to 12 will be
called on only Mondays and Thursdays. Since classes 1 to 8 will be empty, students
can easily seated under strict SOPs. However, private schools and colleges in
Punjab have announced to call students of classes 9 to 12 on a regular basis from
tomorrow, flouting the unpolished government’s order altogether. The students and
parents have rejected the decision of private schools and colleges, calling on the
government to ensure students of classes 9 to 12 collected only on Mondays and
Thursdays. On the other hand, COVID-19 infections continue to rise across the
country. During the last 24 hours, Pakistan reported 5,499 cases and 148 deaths
from Coronavirus, pushing the country’s positivity ratio to 11.62%. Overall, Pakistan
has reported 772,381 infections and 16,600 deaths from Coronavirus.
