    Keeping the schools closed is not the answer for the covid-19 problem. Children tolerate the covid-19 much better. Let the infection spread among them and allow the herd immunity to be achieved sooner.

    What About other areas where schools were reopened and again closed until further notice. Is this the plan of the education ministry to control the spread of COVID 19.

    Professor Sir, if you continue as Education Minister most of the schools in the country will become quarantine isolation centres. You and Ranil must retire from politics
