Varsha Gaikwad, the education minister of Maharashtra said that the state government is constantly monitoring the situation. Also, she added that there is a possibility that schools might get closed in view of the rising Omicron cases.

In her words, “If Omicron infection continues to rise, we may shut the schools again.” Until now, Maharashtra has had 54 registered Omicron cases. Hence, they are only a little behind the national capital, i.e. Delhi that has recorded 57 cases. As for the total number of cases in India, 213 cases have been reported of the fastest spreading strain Omicron.

Maharashtra schools reopened in October for students in classes 5th to 12th in rural areas and classes 8th to 12th in urban areas. Also, physical teaching and learning activities in Maharashtra started on 1st December 2021. Considering the capital city Mumbai, schools reopen on 15th December 2021. In Pune, school reopening was postponed till 15th December 2021. Hence, it is quite evident that all Maharashtra cities and towns fear covid-19, especially the new Omicron variant.
