Schools in Bangaldesh reopened after 543 days in Bangladesh on Sunday, amid ease in the coronavirus situation in the country and the vaccination programme picking up pace.
In many schools, teachers welcomed their pupils with flowers and chocolates. Guardians were barred from entry into the campuses as a precaution against overcrowding and infection spread.
Education Minister Dipu Moni has warned against any lax enforcement of safety measures, while authorities earlier said every class will convene only once a week initially, while schools are to strictly maintain the health guidelines. “If it appears that the infections were reappearing, the government may decide to re-introduce online classes,” she said.
Bangladesh closed schools on March 17 after the coronavirus began to spread in the country, which has one of the highest population densities in the world. Authorities decided to reopen the education institutes after almost 97 per cent of the teachers and staff were vaccinated.
