It will not be easy for the government, too, to monitor on a large scale and because of this, all efforts being made so far can be watered down.
“Testing the health of the students every day and the sanitation of schools shall become a big problem for the authorities if the schools re opens at this juncture when there is no vaccine available in the market.
