All the educational institutions in the country will remain closed until June 15 to curb the spread of coronavirus.

State Minister for Public Administration Farhad Hossain made the remark while talking to the reporter on Wednesday evening.

A gazette notification will be issued on Thursday in this regard, he said.

However, online classes can continue as before during this period, the state minister added.

Earlier on Wednesday afternoon, State Minister Farhad Hossain told Dhaka Tribune that the government was mulling over withdrawing the general holiday soon.

On March 23, as a part of preventive measures against the spread of Covid-19 pandemic, the government declared a general holiday in Bangladesh from March 26 and later extended the shutdown in phases till May 30.

On March 16, the government closed all educational institutions to prevent the spread of coronavirus. No classes have been held since that day. 

Covid-19, a severe acute respiratory illness caused by a new strain of coronavirus, has claimed 22 more lives and infected 1,541 more people in Bangladesh on Wednesday.

The number of confirmed cases in the country now stands at 38,292 and deaths at 544, according to the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS).
