  • Reopening schools in September, given the current scenario is an unrealistic proposition which needs to be reconsidered and not promoted, the Union of Professional Educations said in a statement on Wednesday.
  • The government, through both the Prime Minister Robert Abela and the Education Minister Owen Bonnici, have insisted that schools remain on course to open and physically welcome students with all the necessary precautions in place.
  • The number is a pittance compared with the 486 active cases currently present in the country.
