Dipu Moni, the Minister of Education, indicated that if the coronavirus infections spread further, the government will decide to close educational institutions.

Moreover, the minister stated that government has no plans to make such decision at this time.

Dipu Moni made the remarks after attending the Deputy Commissioners (DC) Conference on Tuesday at Dhaka's Osmani Memorial Auditorium.

The education minister said, "DCs have been instructed to prepare for the virtual classes to be taken after the closure of educational institutions." Where it is not possible to take virtual classes, we have to rely on assignments. '

The education minister further said that so far 85 lakh students between the ages of 12 and 18 have been vaccinated. The decision to vaccinate younger people has not yet been made.
