Health Minister Zahid Maleque on Friday said all schools, colleges and universities will remain closed for the next two weeks due to a surge of COVID-19 cases across the country.

"We decided to shut down all schools, colleges and universities for next two weeks after discussion with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina as the spread of coronavirus has increased sharply," he told a press conference at DGHS headquarters in the capital.

“The government has also decided to remain offices open to ensure the livelihoods of the people and stimulate the economy of the country. However, all government, semi-government, private and autonomous offices will continue its operations with half manpower,” the minister said
