The Sindh High Court has lifted the stay it had granted against the Sindh government’s order to schools to reduce their monthly fee by 20% during the coronavirus pandemic. The court had issued the stay order after private schools had challenged the government’s directives. On Thursday, the court ruled that there was no need to continue with the order since the provincial government had approved the Coronavirus Emergency Relief Ordinance, 2020.
As the coornavirus fear subsided in South Korea, the schools reopened on Wednesday after a delay of two months. Students lined up for temperature checks and were given sanitisers to wash their hands as they entered school premises. South Korea endured one of the worst early outbreaks of the virus — at one point the second-worst hit nation.
