The primary school authorities were instructed to prepare their wash block accordingly.

Besides, the Directorate of Secondary & Higher Education (DSHE) asked the regional directors to take necessary preparations to reopen schools and colleges.

According to education ministry sources, most of the teachers and staffers of the educational institutions have been vaccinated.

Besides, sources within the University Grants Commission claimed that around 80 % students of Dhaka University got their Covid jabs.

However schools will reopen only after the covid positivity rate comes below 5%, said a source of the education ministry.

In that case, the closure of schools might be extended again.

The government shut down educational institutions on March 17, last year after the country reported its first Covid-19 cases on March 8.

Then the closure was extended several times until August 31 this year.
