DU, JnU Goes For Virtual Classes Due To Heat Wave

The Dhaka University authorities have decided to hold all classes online out of concerns for the health of the students amid the ongoing heat wave. The university’s public relations office disclosed the decision through a press release this afternoon, saying that they are shifting from the current 10 per cent online class system to 100 per cent online classes.  

Besides, the students have been advised to wear white or light-colored loose cotton clothing, stay in shady areas as much as possible, use wide-brimmed hats, caps, or umbrellas outside home.

The university authorities also cautioned about diet and instructed the students to drink plenty of clean water and saline fluids, and refrain from consuming hot beverages like tea and coffee.

Meanwhile, JnU postponed examinations scheduled from tomorrow (April 22) to April 25 considering students health issues during the heatwave. JnU Prof Ainul Islam confirmed it to the media after an emergency meeting chaired by the university's Vice-Chancellor Prof Sadika Halim today.

He said classes would be conducted virtually during the period of the heatwave, and the exams that were scheduled for this time have been postponed until next week. Additionally, classes at colleges affiliated with national universities have also been suspended, he added.

Yesterday, the government decided that all primary and secondary schools, and colleges across the country will remain closed from April 21 to 27 due to the heatwave.
