In Hyderabad, all schools have reopened. The school managements are strictly observing the Covid related SoPs. However, in government schools, the attendance of students remained dismal. Whereas, in private schools, a large number of students took their classes. 

The coronavirus pandemic has severely damaged the education sector, especially in Sindh. This year, schools remained open only for 22 days. The educational institutes were opened on June 15. However, due to the severe fourth wave of coronavirus in the province, the schools were again closed on July 16.
