An expert committee set up to suggest measures to tackle the anticipated third wave of COVID-19 infections, led by cardiac surgeon Dr. Devi Shetty, has strongly recommended reopening schools with 2 lakhs of health insurance for each child. The possibility of schools becoming infection hubs has not been proven in any part of the world, the panel said. According to its projections, only 1.5% of Karnataka’s children within the 0-18 year age group will get infected, ou of which 85% can recover at home.
