It Shall Be Wise To Re-open Primary Schools First Before Secondary Schools: ICMR

New Delhi, July 20: As several states plan to reopen schools after the COVID-19 hiatus, the Indian Council of Medical Research Chief Balram Bhargava said that it would be wise to reopen primary schools first before secondary schools in India.

During a media briefing on the COVID-19 situation, Bhargava said that we know clearly that children can handle viral infections much better than adults. Antibody exposure is also similar in children as adults. Some Scandinavian countries didn't shut their primary schools in any coronavirus waves.

He added that once India starts considering, it will be wise to open primary schools first before opening secondary schools. All the support staff whether it be school bus drivers, teachers and other staff in the school need to be vaccinated.
