The Delhi Deputy CM’s comments came following a meeting with delegation of parents led by Chandrakant Lahariya, an epidemiologist and public policy specialist.



“A delegation of parents of Delhi’s children led by @DrLahariya, @AiyarYamini submitted a memorandum to me signed by more than 1600 parents for reopening of schools. Why we are the last among major countries to decide on this?,” Sisodia wrote on Twitter.

After being briefly reopened, schools in the national capital were again closed on 28 December last year in view of the third wave of coronavirus driven by the Omicron variant.

During the ferocious second wave last year, active cases had risen to a high of 99,752 on April 28 and the number reduced to 45,047 by May 19

Experts said the decline in cases is in line with their expectations.
“It was expected. The rise was very rapid. The R naught value — which indicates the spread of Covid-19 — was around 4, which means a person would infect the entire family within two days.
