Ac­cord­ing to me­dia re­ports , just two days af­ter the ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions opened in Pak­istan af­ter six-month clo­sure, 22 schools were sealed due to fail­ure on their part to ad­here to health pro­to­cols worked out to pre­vent the spread of deadly COVID-19 epi­demic .

Ac­cord­ing to Na­tional Com­mand and Op­er­a­tion Cen­ter (NCOC), 16 in­sti­tutes have been shut down in Khy­ber Pakhtunkhw­a (KP), one in Is­lam­abad, and five in Azad Kash­mir.

In Karachi’s Ko­rangi, two pri­vate schools have also been sealed for com­menc­ing classes of pri­mary sec­tions. The con­cerned au­thor­i­ties said that an ac­tion will also be taken against the prin­ci­pals of teh re­spec­tive in­sti­tutes.

In Sindh , eight staff mem­bers of two col­leges in Ma­tiari tested pos­i­tive for the novel COVID-19. Other staff mem­bers and teach­ers of both the col­leges will also un­dergo the coro­n­avirus test.
