Feed Covid status of students on EMIS, schools told | Coimbatore News

Coimbatore: Schools in the district have been asked to feed status of students with regard to Covid on Education Management Information System (EMIS) – a central database with information about every student. EMIS was designed to monitor the performance of education programmes offered by the schools and to manage distribution and allocation of educational resources.
“Recording the Covid status in this centralised database of students would help in keeping track of the positive cases across the state,” district chief education officer N Geetha said. Further, it will also help in effective monitoring and tracking of positive cases, she said.
“All the schools are strictly following the Covid standard operating procedure (SOP) since the reopening on September 1. But the students tested positive were asymptomatic and could not be detected during thermal scanning. While they didn’t show any symptoms like cold or weakness, they were attending classes as usual like other

Why I’m still not ready to get the COVID vaccine

Vaccine hesitancy explained

Come on, Champa Bay, let’s get vaccinated | Column, June 1

Like everyone else, I looked forward to the COVID vaccine as if my life and everyone else’s depended on it. But then I began to read the data and became skeptical about what we’d been told about the novel SARS-CoV-2. The turning point for me came when the experts said we’d have to continue to wear masks and practice at least some degree of social distancing despite being vaccinated. It was evident the world would reopen when the government said so. That is not science; that is control.
