The minister said that dengue was also a matter of concern amid the coronavirus pandemic.

"Everyone seems excited to be back to the classes… Dengue spreads in daytime as students spend that time in schools, the parents should be conscious. The students should wear full sleeve clothes and socks," said Dipu Moni.

She asked the parents and guardians to be more aware and help with social surveillance without disrupting the academic activities or gathering in front of the schools.

"We have to live with coronavirus for a long time. We think it is appropriate to reopen schools now. If we see a chance of infections increasing, we will get back to the way it was before," the minister added further.
