About 21,000 schools are 100% ready for their new term that will begin on July 1 while about 5,000 schools will also apply remote education, according to the Office of Basic Education Commission.


OBEC secretary-general Amnat Wichayanuwat said 21,000 schools were 100% ready to comply with disease control measures instructed by the Center for COVID-19 Situation Administration.


5,000 other schools were large and included primary and secondary students. They would stagger the days of classes for different groups of students, broadcast educational programs and apply online education, he said.

Mr Amnat said any student suspected of contracting the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) would be sent to the Public Health Ministry’s facility right away without being placed in a school sick room in order to prevent transmission. Besides, that school would have to close and turn to broadcast and online educational programs, he said. (TNA)
