The National Command and Operations Centre (NCOC) stated on Thursday that from October 11th, all educational institutions will resume “regular courses” (Monday).
According to Federal Minister for Planning, Development, and Special Initiatives Asad Umar, the decision was made during an NCOC meeting earlier today, where the forum agreed to reopen educational institutions based on the reduced level of disease spread and the launch of the school vaccination programme.
Educational institutions around the country were previously functioning at 50% capacity after reopening following periodic shutdown due to the prevalence of COVID-19.
According to the NCOC, the country reported 1,453 cases in the previous 24 hours, bringing the positive rate to 2.82 percent, and 46 individuals died as a result of the infection.
According to the forum, the country has had 1.25 million coronavirus infections, 28,032 deaths, and 1.18 million recoveries from the epidemic.
According to the NCOC’s data, Pakistan has provided more than 87 million vaccinations, with 31 million second doses and 62 million initial doses.
