As of January 18, the federal government has agreed to reopen educational institutions in three phases. Because of COVID-19, the educational institutions were closed.

It was announced on Monday by Minster for Federal Education and Professional Training Shafqat Mahmood. Following the inter-provincial conference of education ministers in Islamabad, he made the announcement.

He said that on the 25th of this month, students from Grades 1 to 8 will resume their classes at colleges. In the final process, he said, on the first of next month, higher education institutions will reopen.

Dr. Faisal Sultan, Special Assistant on Health, clarified the situation in the sense of COVID-19 earlier, saying that the closure of educational institutions and the other Normal Operating Procedures have led to the containment of the spread of the pandemic.

However, he said a further pause in the situation would help further improve the situation with regard to COVID-19 regulation.

Students are shouting on Shafqat Mahmood

Pakistani students seem to be demanding further vacations, as many are not pleased with the reopening of educational institutions. On Twitter, below are some of the most amusing responses.

In November last year, after the country saw an unprecedented spike in cases and deaths during the second wave of the coronavirus, the government decided to close educational institutions. Mahmood called Twitter ‘confirm jannati’ earlier when he announced the closure of educational institutions.

Meanwhile, as Pakistan’s second wave of infections gathers pace, PM Imran has also urged the nation to strictly obey COVID-19 SOPs.
