Islamabad : The federal government had announced the closure of all educational institutions in the country until May 31 to stem the outbreak of coronavirus.

According to a notification issued by the Ministry of Federal Education and Professional Training on Friday, all public and private schools, colleges, universities and seminaries will be closed for two months.

The decision to this affect was made on Thursday by the National Coordination Committee on the recommendations of Inter Provincial Education Ministers video Conference.

The notification further said the closure of schools would be treated as summer vacation.

According to it, all four provinces, Azad Jammu and Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan are bound to act on the announcement.

Minister for Federal Education and Professional Training Shafqat Mahmood said the educational institutions would resume classes in June if the coronavirus outbreak was contained in the country.
