Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni will virtually hold a press conference regarding the decision on the vacation of educational institutes. 

Confirming the information, Information and Public Relations Officer of the Ministry of Education MA Khair on Wednesday said that the Minister will hold the press conference through online at 12:00 pm on Thursday. 

Earlier on October 21, Dipu Moni hinted that educational institutions may not reopen in November this year. 

"Many countries who had reopened schools are now going to close educational institutions. Besides, there is anxiety over the coronavirus situation in the winter season," she said while addressing a press conference online. 

"We will think about reopening schools when we feel there are no health risks for students, teachers and guardians," Dipu Moni said, adding: "It is not possible for anyone to say when that situation will arise," Dipu Moni said. 

All the educational institutions have remained suspended since March 17 in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak. Besides, HSC and equivalent examinations have been cancelled that were scheduled to begin on April 1. The education ministry also scrapped the Primary Education Completion (PEC), Junior School Certificate (JSC) and JDC examinations.
