Antony went on to talk about how a parent sits to teach their child at home, there are occasions when they end up raising their voice. “Put yourself in a situation where you are handling 20-40 students…It is not easy. Suddenly now, they (teachers) are having to teach online.”

“Working from home comes naturally to some of the professions…it does not adapt itself to schools very easily,” the surgeon commented. “Please do not put additional stress on these teachers who are learning,” he urged.
