Mentioning that coronavirus infection is increasing in the country, Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni has said, however, "we are not thinking of closing down educational institutions right now." 

The Minister said this while talking to the media on Sunday afternoon. 

Dr Dipu Moni said that the vaccination program is going on very vigorously. If the educational institution is closed, there has a fear that the vaccination program will go downhill. 

'We are reviewing and observing the situation. We have not yet received any reports of any kind of infection in any educational institution. Apart from this, the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) is also monitoring the issue. We are in touch with the National Advisory Committee. We are not thinking of closing down the educational institution right now," she said. 

Dr Dipu Moni further said, "We have to fight the coronavirus in accordance with the rules of hygiene, keeping life as normal as possible. Therefore, we are not thinking of closing down the educational institution at the moment. But if the situation demands so, then we will decide."
