Guleria in favor of opening school : AIIMS director said - it will take nine months for children to get vaccinated
Cases of corona infection have intensified again in the country. A third wave is expected this month. Here in the national capital, schools have been opened for children from September 1, but the vaccine is not yet available for children in the country. This decision of the government has started a debate among experts, students, teachers, and parents about how children can go to school without vaccinating. In the midst of all this, AIIMS Director Randeep Guleria said that it will take up to nine months to vaccinate all children in India, so the future of children cannot be played with for a long time. Schools are essential for the development of children. Because physical contact is important for children.
On the opening of schools, Randeep Guleria has said that schools can be opened in those places where there are fewer cases of the corona. AIIMS director Guleria said that not all children have the facility to study online and neither does that environment exist, in such a situation it is necessary to open a school. He said that almost all the teachers in the schools have been vaccinated, the condition there is most favorable. He has appealed to all the teachers and staff to come forward themselves and get them vaccinated. Dr. Guleria appealed to the school administration not to allow crowds to gather during lunch breaks and at any other time. He said that we have to take full care of whether the children are following social distancing or not.
Preparations in full swing to deal with the third wave
At the same time, on the children being hit during the third wave, Dr. Guleria has said that arrangements are being made to make children's wards and other medical equipment in view of Corona. For this, preparations are in full swing in every district. Let us inform you that Dr. Naresh Trehan, Chairman of Medanta Hospital had said that if children fall ill with Corona, then our hospitals will not be able to handle them because we do not have that much facility yet.
