The Ministry of Education is considering the possibility of getting students back to school on a daily schedule.

On Tuesday, the ministry said it reviewed with the Director of the National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) the current study plan and the possibility of adjusting it.

Director of the National Center for Disease Control, Haider AlSayeh, briefed the Education Ministry on the report of the NCDC scientific advisory committee, which stated that the return to daily classes requires the vaccination of 70% of the education sector, including students, teachers, administrators, and the like.

Meanwhile, the Acting Minister of Education, Ahmed Abu Khuzam, emphasized the need to work on an intensive vaccination plan, underscoring that the health of students is a priority for his ministry.
