State Health Minister Rajesh Tope said last week that there was a need for schools to resume in the state.
Maharashtra’s Education Minister announced today that schools will resume for all classes next week. Varsha Gaikwad, Maharashtra’s School Education Minister, made the announcement by saying that all schools must implement Covid regulations.
Ms Gaikwad was reported by news agency ANI as saying, “We will be resuming schools for grades 1-12th with COVID-19 protocols from January 24th; Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has consented to our proposal.”
State Health Minister Rajesh Tope said last week that there was a need for schools to reopen in the state.
“Demands for school reopening are increasing from some quarters as children lose access to education,” he stated.
The Maharashtra government declared earlier this month that schools in the state would be closed until February 15 as the number of coronavirus infections began to rise in December due to the development of the new Omicron variety.
“The government chose not to continue with the school (offline) sessions after the number of COVID cases increased. However, after consulting with experts, it was agreed to begin the sessions where the number of cases is minimal, depending on the COVID-19 situation in the area “Ms. Gaikwad explained.
According to the health department, Maharashtra registered 43,697 new coronavirus positive cases on Wednesday, up 10% over the previous day, with 214 Omicron infections and 49 fatalities.
With this, the state’s caseload increased to 73,25,825, with 1,41,934 fatalities.
The new Omicron cases brought the total number of people infected with this strain to 1,860, according to the report.
