PIB claimed that all these claims are bogus and must do a fact check before sharing any such news related to Covid. PIB Fact Checked has debugged the claims.
After the fact check of PIB, it has become clear that no such guidelines have been issued at present. However, schools have been shut in many places such as Kanpur, Noida Lucknow, Bihar, Jharkhand, Punjab, Delhi due to the cold wave taking over, and school timings were also changed in some parts of India due to the dense fog setting on the streets and causing low visibility. People are advised to believe only official source news and avoid any such misleading information.
