With several Delhi government and municipal school teachers continuing to remain on Covid-19 related survey work for the past one month, officials of several schools said the teaching-learning process has been severely hit, and they have fewer hands to help students who are already struggling to cope with a switch to the online mode amid the pandemic.
Due to the rising cases of Covid-19 in the national capital, hundreds of teachers, along with other government employees, were deployed on a door-to-door survey in hot spots and vulnerable areas, as well as to assist the teams that are conducting tests and contact tracing since November 19. Almost a month has passed, but thousands of teachers have still not been relieved from that duty.
According to the teacher associations of both Delhi government and municipal schools, as many as 15,000 teachers of government schools and around 10,000 teachers from municipal schools are presently involved in Covid-19 related duties.
