The All Pakistan Private Schools’ Association has said that it would open schools from August 15, defying government orders that said schools would be allowed to open from September 15 provided Covid-19 cases continued to decline.
At a press conference in Islamabad, the association’s head, Hidayat Khan, said that coronavirus was on a downward trend and cases were declining. “Educational institutions have been closed for six to eight months, causing huge loss to students,” he said, adding that the association had tried to “negotiate with the government but it did not listen”.
