Earlier in March, the government ordered all the schools, colleges and universities across the country to close down soon after the first cases of Covid-19 in Bangladesh were reported on March 8.
The shutdown has since been extended several times, with the latest one issued on Thursday.
The government has been running a distance-learning program through Sangsad Television for schools and colleges. Classes are taking place on Facebook and YouTube for primary and secondary-level students as well.
Many universities have already started online classes to keep up with the coursework.
