On the occasion, HoD Community Medicine Dr Saleem briefed the meeting about the precautions to be taken for reopening of schools. He said it is the duty of one and all to ensure that all children are safe whether in school or out of school.
He said, therefore, even though schools are closed, it is our priority to ensure that children are safe wherever they are and we are ensuring their mental health by psycho-social support.
