Strict measures on preventions needed
There were 27 examination centres for supplementary exams in Indore. There were about 250 to 500 students at every centre.
Sadly, at every centre, there were a few students who ignored the need to wear a mask. These students were spotted roaming around exam centres and chatting up with friends.
With so many students gathered around the centre, the risk of coronavirus outbreak was amplified by such ignorant students.
“All the invigilators have been given strict instructions to ensure enforcement of coronavirus protocols, but some students seem to sneak their way into breaking rules. I will be consulting district education officer (DEO) to ensure stricter measures,” Deven Sonwani, divisional officer, MPBSE, said.
However, DEO Rajendra Makhwani is on a long leave of three months, which could have been a reason for the slip up.
