After the opening of the school with full capacity in the state, cases of corona infection among children are increasing rapidly. In the Jayshree Periwal International School located in Mahapura, 12 children of class 11 were found corona positive in a single day on Tuesday.
There has been a fuss in the schools of the state including the capital Jaipur due to the increase in the cases of corona infection among the children. The Rajasthan government has to decide to resume online classes in schools.
A decision can be taken for conducting online classes
Education Minister, Dr BD Kalla has called a meeting on the increasing corona infection case in schools and to discuss education in schools. The government can decide to stop offline classes of school children of pre-primary and primary school or to conduct studies only through online classes. The attendance of students in higher primary, secondary and senior secondary classes can also be reduced by 50 per cent.
Both online and offline options will be given
Education Minister, Dr BD Kalla said that the decision will be taken keeping in mind the health of the children and direct private schools to conduct classes online as well as offline. It will be decided after taking the feedback of the concerned departments including the Home Department. Earlier also the schools were opened with the opinion of the Home Department and the covid guidelines. The schools will only be opened as per the guidelines of the Home Department and will be fully followed. Along with this, both online and offline options will be considered at places where there is a high infection spread.
Children becoming Covid carriers
In the Jayshree Periwal International School located in Mahapura, 12 children of class 11 were found Corona positive. Most of them are from other states with day-boarding. While 5 of these children have gone to their families. The remaining 8 children have been kept in quarantine in the school itself. All are Asymptomatic and have no symptoms of the disease but the danger is that these same children can be big Covid carriers and will infect others wherever they go.
The government’s exemption became deadly

Schools opened at 100% capacity, social distancing is not followed in the classroom
Private schools stopped online classes, it became a compulsion to come to school.
Sanitisers, masks are also being ignored in schools.
School vans, autos are also taking children fully and children are sitting nearby.
