Philippine’s officials said on Monday that students will only be allowed to return to school after a new vaccine for the new Coronavirus (COVID-19) is provided.

The officials added –  that it is possible to broadcast educational lessons on TV in light of the crisis.

The Philippine President, Rodrigo Duterte, had stressed in May that students should not return to schools in his country even if they could not graduate.

We will abide by the president’s directives to postpone lessons face to face until the vaccine is available,” said Leonor Prionos, Philippine Education Secretary.

Instead, she added, the Alternative Education Administration will implement alternatives such as “online” classrooms, print units, or television and radio learning to ensure continuing education.

She explained that radio and television and Internet learning is being prepared and updated for this year and that teachers are being trained to use new platforms to help in their professional development.

It is noteworthy that the number of new cases of the new “Corona” virus in the Philippines reaches more than 22 thousand people.
