The decision on reopening of school and colleges would be taken later, he added.

Education minister Dipu Moni on 26 May expressed hope that educational institutions up to higher secondary level would reopen on 13 June provided the Covid-19 situation becomes favourable.

The Covid-19 cases and deaths have surged again in the country. Moreover, spreading of Indian variant of the virus in bordering districts has created fresh apprehension.

All the educational institutes of the country have been shut since 17 March last year. The closure was extended multiple times since then. Educationists voiced concerned over the loss incurred by the closure and urged the authorities to take longterm plan to make up for the loss of students.
