Another five schools have suspended classroom teaching due to the coronavirus, and a further eight are switching to digital education.

According to MTI, the operative board coordinating response to the novel coronavirus epidemic has ordered three schools to halt traditional classroom teaching completely, while another five had to re-introduce digital education in specific classes.

Zoltán Maruzsa, secretary of public education, said that four nurseries and six schools suspended teaching. In the coming period, infections in schools will be handled individually, with schools switching to digital education if necessary and returning to normal operations as soon as the spread of the virus is contained, he said.

“Digital education was an effective precautionary measure in the spring, but I think it is unimaginable to have the country go for an entire school year with digital education,” he said.
