While the state permitted the reopening of schools, a total of 5 institutes were sealed shut in Indore as per the instructions of the district collector, Manish Singh. According to his socials, the schools that were sealed were unable to produce any vaccination data for their students. These schools were further instructed to complete vaccination for the students in two days time, following which the closure shall be revoked.
With the vaccination drive in progress for 15 to 17-year-olds, the collector’s office issued another order. Officials and school staff helping with the vaccination drive can be punished under section-144 of the IPC on account of negligence.
Very few admitted to hospitals after testing positive
