Stop face-to-face school sessions for now – PKR


MIRI: State government should consider putting face-to-face school sessions on hold, in view of the massive rise in the number of positive Covid-19 cases reported in Sarawak.

The women’s deputy chief of Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) Sarawak, Zulhaidah Suboh, said the present situation had put the parents in a dilemma.

“Sarawak is not in a good situation right now. Perhaps, the state government could reconsider having face-to-face school sessions be put on hold, to ease parents’ worries about their children’s health, safety and well-being at school,” she said in a statement yesterday.

Zulhaidah, who is also Sibuti PKR Women chief, also felt that the state government should look into re-implementi­ng the Movement Control Order (MCO) in Sarawak, as a way to flatten the Covid-19 curve.

Moreover, she also expressed hope that the government could speed up the Covid-19 vaccinatio­n programme, focusing on the people in the rural areas.

Speaking of rural areas, she highlighte­d on the need to improve the health facilities throughout Sarawak.
