Nepal Ministry of Education, Science, and Technology has decided to close schools until January 29.

The decision was made at a meeting of the Ministry of Education, Science, and Technology on Monday morning, in accordance with the suggestion provided by the COVID19 Crisis Management Coordination Center (CCMCC), according to Deepak Sharma, Joint Secretary at the ministry.

“Educational institutes will remain closed in accordance with the CCMCC’s proposal.” “The ministry will not make any further decisions,” Sharma said, adding, “We will publish a notification in that regard.”

A CCMCC meeting on Sunday suggested that schools be closed until January 29 because to the recent increase in COVID19 cases.

The government made the decisions in response to the growing number of COVID19 cases. On Friday, 24 coronavirus cases with the Omicron type were discovered in the country.

The country has seen an alarming increase in coronavirus cases, with the daily total reaching 1,167 on Sunday.
