WHO Scientist Soumya Swaminathan expressed her opinion that the schools should open and should not wait till the vaccine get released. She added that the disruption of instructional time could negatively impact the learning capability of the children. She also said that the people with covid19 should be kept in quarantine strictly, which may mitigate the novel corona virus’s infection. She said that the poor and marginalised children were out of school for a long time and they could not afford for the online classes. They might not return to schools when it reopens.
