Educational institutions to remain shut till Jun 15

All the educational institutions will remain closed until Jun 15, State Minister for Public Administration Farhad Hossain said Wednesday (May 27). A gazette notification will be issued on Thursday in this regard, he told media.

However, online classes can be run as before during this period, he said.

The general holidays were announced in March to contain the transmission of coronavirus and were extended to May 30 in phases as the number of confirmed coronavirus cases and deaths rose.

On Mar 16, the government closed all educational institutes to prevent the spread of coronavirus. No classes have been held since that day. 

Bangladesh on Wednesday reported 1,541 new coronavirus cases with 22 more deaths.

The number of confirmed cases in the country now stands at 38,292 and deaths at 544, according to the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS).
