The World Health Organization and Unicef have asked the world authorities to open schools so that children can follow face-to-face classes before the next start of the 2021-2022 school year, for which they recommend applying prevention measures, in order to to minimize the risk of contagion of coronavirus.
The authorities indicate that the pandemic has caused the greatest disruption in education in history and that going to school is important for children, not only to advance in education, but also for psychological and social relations issues.
President Nicolás Maduro announced that on September 16 in Venezuela face-to-face classes began, with the training of teachers, parents and representatives through workshops, which allow them to design the biosafety conditions to receive children in the classrooms, in the month of October.
He also requested the governors and mayors, accompanied by the Popular Power, to initiate the repair work of the educational centers through the Una Droplet of Love program, a task that must be accompanied by a massive disinfection plan for schools and high schools, as well as of the reinforcement of the campaigns of the prevention measures against the covid-19, especially with regard to the correct use of the mask, washing of the hands and the social distancing. Vaccination processes were also reinforced.
In the Sucre municipality we have already activated all these processes, so that in a safe way our children and young people meet again, with joy, in their educational centers. It is necessary to remember: "If I take care of myself, I take care of you, if you take care of yourself, you take care of me."
