‘Edn instts not being closed despite Covid-19 infection increases’

Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni has said no decision has yet been taken to close the educational institutions at this moment although the Covid-19 infection has increased. 

She said, “Right now, we are thinking about the start of Covid-19 vaccination of the students less than 12 years old. The decision of closing educational institutions will be taken considering the situation.”   

The education minister made the remark at a press conference at Secretariat in the capital on Wednesday.   

Dipu Moni said, “We are concerned over the sudden rise of Covid-19 in the country. But, it is not being considered to close the educational institutions. The academic institutions will not be closed if it is possible to bring all students under vaccination. If that is not done, then there will be different thinking.”
