76% parents say not sending children to school till Covid-19 cases down to zero: Study | E Location News

New Delhi: A total of 76 per cent parents are not ready to send their children to school till cases in their district go down to zero or children get vaccinated.

According to a survey by Local Circles, the percentage of parents who will send their children to school has reduced from 69 per cent to 20 per cent in 4 months.

65 per cent parents approve of their children receiving the Covid vaccine if it is made available by September 2021.

As per Local Circles, the government in its daily briefing announced this week that opening schools will be difficult till a major chunk of the population is vaccinated.

With the second wave of Covid-19 seeing even children and infants getting infected with the coronavirus, in such a scenario, the resumption of school according to medical experts may lead to an increase in the number of cases, particularly at the time the imminent threat of the third wave is expected to hit India in less than 2 months.
