The holiday was extended several times – the latest on Monday

The Ministry of Education has decided to extend the ongoing holiday of all institutions across Bangladesh till August 06.  

The decision came following the government’s decision to announce general holiday at the red zone areas to control further spread of deadly coronavirus in Bangladesh, Secondary and Higher Education Secretary Mahbub Hossain told Dhaka Tribune on Monday.

A circular in this regard will be issued soon, he added.

The holiday was extended several times – the latest on Monday.

After the first detection of Covid-19 infection in Bangladesh on March 8, followed by the first report of a death on March 18, the Education Ministry closed all schools, colleges, and universities from March 18 to 31, and later extended the closure till April 9 due to the global pandemic.

On April 7, the ministry decided to extend the shutdown till the Eid-ul-Fitr holidays.

Due to the pandemic, the Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) and equivalent examinations, which were scheduled to start on April 1, were also postponed indefinitely.

The government imposed a nationwide “general holiday” on March 26 to prevent transmission of Covid-19, a highly contagious and severe acute respiratory infection caused by the novel coronavirus.
