Hungary is proposing extending remote learning for secondary schools beyond next Monday due to high coronavirus infections and uncertainties over a new variant of the virus that first emerged in the United Kingdom, a state secretary said, APA reports citing Reuters.

Zoltan Maruzsa told an online briefing on Thursday that Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s government would make a decision about the extension on Friday, adding however that classroom teaching in secondary schools was unlikely to resume next week.

“We decided to be cautious, the safety of human lives is the most important thing now,” Maruzsa said.

 

“The government will decide tomorrow, but I am asking schools to prepare for in-person teaching not to start again on Jan. 11.”
