Balochistan to propose 15-day delay in reopening of primary schools amid rising cases

Balochistan government spokesperson Liaquat Shahwani on Saturday said that the provincial government would propose in the upcoming National Command and Operation (NCOC) meeting that reopening of primary schools, scheduled to resume on Sept 30, be delayed by 15 days in view of rising coronavirus cases.

His comments came as Federal Education Minister Shafqat Mehmood announced that primary schools in the country would be reopened pending a final review in the NCOC meeting on Sept 29.

Shahwani warned of a rising coronavirus trend in the province, saying cases in Balochistan had nearly tripled since August.
