Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa on Tuesday said that the government will consider opening higher educational institutions in a phased manner after vaccinating students and teachers, following recommendations from the Dr. Devi Shetty-led expert committee on a possible third wave of Covid-19. He said that the committee has advised accelerating the rate of vaccinations as vaccines are the solution for COVID control.
“The committee has supported the relaxations in COVID curbs announced by the government, and have suggested opening up educational institutions in the days to come, starting with higher education colleges, after vaccinating,” Yediyurappa said. The Karnataka government had recently constituted a 13-member expert committee headed by Dr Devi Shetty, an eminent cardiologist and the founder of Narayana Health, to analyse and advise to control a possible third Covid-19 wave in Karnataka.
