Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni said there is no infection of coronavirus at local level. Besides, no situation has been created to shut down school and colleges. If any situation is noticed, steps would be taken immediately.

The Minister came up with the statement while speaking at a programme in the capital’s Maulana Bhasani Stadium on Sunday evening.

She said we are now trying to stop bearing infection of coronavirus from abroad. All of land ports have been closed. Measures were taken at airports as well. People who are coming in are being kept in quarantine. Hope, bearing infection from abroad would be stopped soon.

The Minister said we are trying our best. If the infection is found being spread locally, school-colleges may be shut down, if necessary. But any situation has yet been created to declare educational institutions shut down.
