Due to the recent spike in coronavirus cases, the Manipur government has ordered the closure of all schools until the next week. Tuesday's formal directive from Schools Education Commissioner H Gyan Prakash stated that the state's test positivity rate was over 15%.
The directive specified that all schools, including public, private, and state-aided schools associated with other boards, would be closed immediately until July 24 in the interest of the general public. On July 16, many schools were expected to reopen following the summer break.
Since there is currently no effective Covid-19 vaccination for children under the age of 12 in Manipur, the government will discuss the safety of the health of those children, according to Chief Minister N Biren Singh.
