DU shuts down indefinitely

Dhaka University has suspended all classes and exams indefinitely as coronavirus cases and deaths continue to surge in Bangladesh. The university announced the move in a statement on Thursday (Apr 9). Students will be informed three days before classes and exams resume, it said.

The government extended a shutdown of all offices and workplaces to Apr 14 in a bid to limit the spread of the coronavirus.

While academic activities have been suspended indefinitely, the university will resume its administrative operations after the lockdown ends, local media reported.
