The government has further extended the closure of all the educational institutions of Bangladesh until July 31 as the coronavirus situation keeps worsening in the country.
The decision has been taken considering the overall Covid-19 situation, imposition of restrictions and safety of teachers, students and staff.
Mohammad Abul Khayer, public relations officer of the Education Ministry, confirmed the matter on Tuesday.
Earlier on May 26, the government had decided to reopen the educational institutions, particularly primary, secondary and higher secondary ones, in the country on June 13 depending on the Covid situation. But the situation keeps worsening in the country, particularly in bordering districts.
On March 16 last year, the government closed all the educational institutions to prevent the spread of coronavirus. No classes have been held since then.
