Education Minister Dipu Moni says that students in secondary, higher secondary and higher education will be able to resume in-person classes on Feb 22 due to the decline of coronavirus cases, reports.

However, only students who have received at least two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine will be allowed to return for now, she said on Thursday.

Those who have not received a second dose will have to continue online and TV classes.

Primary school students will also have to wait some time to return to school as those below the age of 12 have not received the vaccine.

The positivity rate of COVID-19 tests has dropped to 12 percent, the education minister said.

The rate may drop further in the next 10-14 days, and could reach a level where primary schools are reopened, she said.

The government is also mulling how to vaccinate those under the age of 12 against the disease, Dipu Moni added.
