Deputy Minister for Education Mohibul Hasan Chowdhury Nowfel said on Saturday that policy makers were considering reopening schools in areas where the COVID-19 transmission rate was below 10%.

Educational institutions across Bangladesh had remained closed since March as per suggestion from a technical committee to prevent any risk of COVID-19 transmission, he said.

“Time has come to consider the current situation and think differently. Usually, decisions taken are always capital-based. But now we need to take decisions on how most of the people in Bangladesh are leading their lives. There is no alternative to reopening schools through maintaining health guidelines in this regard,” said the deputy minister.
