A high number of schools and kindergartens opened their gates to children during the first week after the strict anti-coronavirus measures were lifted.
As much as 80.6 percent of kindergartens (or 2,265 facilities) re-opened, welcoming about 70,000 children (50 percent of the total number). At the same time, 90.5 percent of primary schools (or 1,867 facilities) were reopened, with 170,000 first-fifth graders (63 percent of the total number) returning.
“The real numbers exceeded the expected interest that oscillated around 60 percent in the case of kindergartens and 80 percent in the case of primary schools,” the Education Ministry reported, as quoted by the TASR newswire.
