"We urge the directors and promoters of public and private educational institutions in the rest of the capital to remain vigilant and, if necessary, to take the necessary measures to guarantee the safety of students, teachers and administrative staff," he said.

In the Apurímac region there is also a similar panorama regarding face-to-face classes, since after the various violent demonstrations that have taken place in this place, the decision has been made to suspend classes indefinitely with the aim of caring for the student community and teachers.
