Amid fears of a second wave of coronavirus in Pakistan, Federal Minister for Education Shafqat Mahmood on Thursday said that the federal government has no intention to close educational institutions again.

"With the blessing of Almighty Allah, we are in a position to send our children to schools, the decision of closing schools during the outbreak was a good assessment which has saved our education sector and now we have no intention to close educational institutions again," he said while addressing students at Batrasi Cadet College in Mansehra.
