It is time to reopen schools in India in a staggered way, said Dr Randeep Guleria. The AIIMS Director added that Indian children have developed good levels of immunity against Covid-19.

Director of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in New Delhi says that the country should consider reopening schools in a “staggered way”. Most schools in India have been shut since the first nationwide lockdown to contain the spread of Covid-19 was imposed in March of last year. Classes are being conducted virtually ever since. While the central government did allow a phased reopening of schools last October, the decision was withdrawn soon after. Speaking exclusively to India Today, AIIMS Director Dr Randeep Guleria said, “I am a proponent of opening up schools in a staggered way, for districts that are seeing less virus circulation.”
