Schools are closed as soon as we have winter. Schools are usually closed for one month each in harsh summer and winter. The school is also opening in minus 51 degree Celsius temperature in the city of Omiyakon, Russia. The biggest thing is that in spite of this cold, the children are coming to the classroom to study. The school is closed to students aged 11 years or younger only when the temperature drops to -52 degrees or less.

This is the history of the village
This government school is 83 years old, located in the village of Siberia. The school was built in 1932 under the rule of Stalin. Here children from the villages of Khara Tumul and Bereg Yurde come to study. Omiyakon has a population of around 2500. There are some very basic facilities like post office and bank.

Investigation is done immediately if the health worsens
The corona virus remains in danger even in this very inaccessible and challenging place. Despite the epidemic, the school is opening here. However, parents and staff, along with children, have to undergo a temperature check before entering school to prevent infection. If any student or staff gets sick, a cavid test is done immediately.

Local photographer Semyon of this remote village of Omiyakon, Russia, says that he was shooting a photo here on 8 December. Then the temperature here was minus 50 degrees. I wore gloves during work. If I did not wear them, my fingers would freeze completely and I could have frostbiting, which can cause great damage to the fingers due to extreme cold.

Hypothermia remains a danger
From this, you can get an idea of ​​how many children here face challenges and go to school. They are sometimes with their parents, sometimes they accompany their pet dogs. The risk of hypothermia also increases significantly at minus 50 degrees temperatures.

Villagers living very challenging lives
Hypothermia is a medical emergency in which the body temperature starts dropping very rapidly, it can cause high blood pressure, rapid heartbeat, and even death in some cases. Doctors also refuse to take long, deep breaths at this temperature, because breathing only at this temperature can be painful. There is also a risk of cold air filling the lungs, which can be dangerous for health. Not only studies in this area, but also normal life is very challenging.
