The statistics raise alarm about the safety of both students and teachers during school reopening period. Most teachers had the test before the reopening but received result after that.

When the result of prior tests came, up to 829 government teachers along with 575 students in Andhra Pradesh schools were positive with the virus. What’s more, most of these teachers were tested before the reopening and only received the result after they attended classes.

This means many teachers may accidentally spread Covid-19 to their students before the result came yesterday at 3 p.m.

Even everyone wears a mask, the infection risk is still there.

According to the local authority, the percentage of infected teachers in Andhra Pradesh is around 1.17% while the rate of infected students is 0.6%. There are 70,790 teachers and 95,763 schoolchildren in the state in total.

Though the School Education Commissioner Vadrevu Chinna Veerabhadrudu has busted the rumour of rising infections after schools were reopened, there remains likelihood that the number of people contracting coronavirus may rise because many patients were unaware of their condition before the result came yesterday.

Despite the fear of virus infection, both learners and teachers are glad to be back to school.

Having said that, Mr. Veerabhadrudu affirms that schools are strictly following health protocols with all due precautions to ensure a safe environment for all.

He also highlights the fact that both students and teachers are giving encouraging responses towards continuing the teaching-learning activity after a long time of home quarantine.
