India resumes in-person classes amid COVID-19 pandemic

Students use hand sanitizers before entering their respective classes at a government school in Hyderabad, India on Wednesday after the state government relaxed the COVID-19 lockdown norms for educational institutions, allowing students to attend physical classes. According to a UNICEF statement released August 25, most of the world have already started in-person classes since the start of the pandemic except for the Philippines, Bangladesh, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and Venezuela.
