Don’t pay heed to rumours over closure of educational institutions: Ministry
The Education Ministry has urged the people of the country not to pay heed to any rumour over the closure of educational institutions due to the spike in Covid-19 cases.
"Quoting Education Minister Dipu Moni, it is being spread in social medical that educational institutions will be closed for an indefinite period, which is a rumour, and the Minister didn't give any statement in this regard recently," the ministry said in a notice issued today.
"The government is monitoring the overall Covid situation and it will sit with the National Technical Advisory Committee on Covid again and will decide later," it added.
However, now the government is giving priority to ensuring vaccination of all students.
