Being asked about status of opening schools, Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) Director General, Balram Bhargava on July 20 stated that primary schools first should be open before secondary ones. “We know clearly that children can handle viral infections much better than adults. Antibody exposure is also similar in children as adults. Some Scandinavian countries didn't shut their primary schools in any COVID waves. Once India starts considering, it will be wise to open primary schools first before opening secondary schools. All the support staff whether it be school bus drivers, teachers and other staff in the school need to be vaccinated,” said ICMR DG Balram Bhargava.
