Educational departments including private sector educational departments as well as public sector educational departments are completely shut down due to coronavirus. In order to get prevention from this cruel disease, the government of Pakistan has decided to close the schools, colleges, and universities until April 5th, 2020. This circumstance does not bring the disaster in the education system but the employment system is also being effected under this circumstance.
During the recent days, there are several controversies came to see and out of which the major one was the contradictory point of the parents of the students. According to the report of Sindh province, it comes to see that the parents declared that they won’t pay the school or college dues during the vacation period. In return for this declaration, the administration departments of schools and colleges have also declared that they won’t be able to pay the salaries to the teachers or professor if the parents or students will not pay the dues of the studies.
So, the educational departments have sent an application to the government of Pakistan in which it has been requested to announce that the parents will pay the study dues because of which the salaries would be deposited to the teachers or professors.
- Impacts Of Coronavirus on Private Sector Organizations
The private sector organizations including IT offices, account offices, retail stores, clothing brands, restaurants, and other organizations are also afraid of this virus. However, there is no notification has declared by the government for the closing of these organizations. But, for the sake of their safety, a large number of Private Sector Organizations including offices are going to be closed. These offices are allowed their employees to perform work from their home or some other possible measures have been taken by the employers to offer their contribution to controlling this cruel disease.
Pakistan’s biggest software company NetSol has also decided to close the office and employers are working from their home. Similarly, in Karachi, an employee was confirmed as the coronavirus victim in a software company. The company took the decision to close the company to protect other employees. The company allows the employees to work from home to compensate for the loss in the business.
At the same time, it has also seen that the government announced that the hotels, restaurants, marriage halls, and all other related places should remain closed until the next announcement from the government’s side. In order to make strong policies, the government is also going to punish the people who will try to break the announcements or the policies said by the government.
- Impacts Of Coronavirus on Public Sector Organizations
It is expecting that the government sector organizations where there is a doubt of the disease would also be closed. Organizations like hospitals, police departments, armed forces, courts, and other related departments are not supposed to close. So, for these types of organizations, there are strict protective measures have been taken to be protected from this pandemic.
The government is playing its best in this regard. But, as being the responsible citizen of Pakistan it is our duty to work along with our government to keep our country or nation protected from this cruel plague. So, for this purpose, we have to take all the preventive measures seriously that have suggested by the government. We should remain close all the departments or places for which the government has said to us. Organizations like schools, colleges, universities, and other related departments must remain close until the suggested period. Do not take these preventive measures badly. Instead of giving criticism, just think that these are all suggested for the sake of your health.
