The proposal was made by the capital’s Department of Education and Training at a virtual meeting on February 7 following the municipal authorities’ earlier decision of allowing students of these grades in 18 suburban districts and towns to go back to school from February 10.

The meeting reviewed the preparation for the resumption of face-to-face learning targeting seventh to twelfth graders in the city from February 8.

Reports from education and training offices of 30 local towns and districts showed that all work had been done as of 6pm on February 7, ready to welcome back the students in line with COVID-19 prevention and control measures.

According to the department’s statistics, more than 99 percent of teachers, educational staff, and students at the secondary and high school levels in Ha Noi have been vaccinated against coronavirus.

Viet Nam logged 16,815 new COVID-19 infections on February 7. Ha Noi recorded the highest number of infections with 2,988, followed by Nghe An with 1,247 and Da Nang with 935.
