Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni on Friday said that the educational institutions will be reopened soon after declining the coronavirus infection rate in the country.

“We are monitoring the situation. The next steps will be taken based on the coronavirus situation after two weeks. But now the online classes will be continued,” she said.

Moni came up with the remarks while talking to journalists after attending a meeting of National Curriculum and Textbook Board (NCTB) in Dhaka. She said the government has decided to close the educational institutions considering the upward trend of the coronavirus infections in the country.

The minister said the instructions of closure of primary schools will be sent to the Ministry of Primary and Mass Education, and then the ministry will take decision.

Besides, the residential students of the universities will have to follow the direction of health guidelines. If the situation improves, they will return to classes. However, teachers can join the administrative work.

Apart from educational institutions, coaching centers will be closed, she said.
