The reopening of schools was a risk or middle path the state government decided upon to stop the spread of the virus as well as ensure children do not suffer. “We have given a lot of flexibility and also stressed that following Covid-19 norms is a must,” the minister said.

While Covid-19 cases have increased over the past few days, 90-95 percent oxygen and ICU beds are vacant, he said, adding that restrictions would be eased if the rate of hospitalisation remains low.

The minister also informed that 90 per cent of eligible beneficiaries in the state have taken the first dose of the coronavirus vaccine, while second dose coverage is in the 62-63 percent range.
