    In my opinion I think that government should not open schools as the situation we all can see , We should not risk the life of children.
    So well government should not open schools . Children can’t wear mask for 5 or 6 hours and they are not that mature that they can take care of themselves.
    As a parent I think that government should not open schools as Covid-19 is increasing and should not risk children health and lives.
    Thank you .
