The National Command and Control Centre (NCOC) will review the countrywide situation of COVID-19 before giving the final approval to reopen educational institutes in September.

According to reports, NCOC will only allow educational institutes to reopen after the implementation of strict SOPs to ensure students and staff do not fall victim to COVID-19.

Previously, reports had surfaced twice claiming that educational institutes are reopening from 15 July and then later from 15 August.
