Myanmar schools to re-open in June if virus situation is contained

Schools in Myanmar will re-open in June only if the COVID-19 situation in the country could be mitigated in May, said an official from the education ministry.

Basic education schools had planned to re-open on June 1 after the Thingyan Holiday but only if the virus situation returns to normalcy next month, said U Ko Law Win, director general of the Basic Education Department.

The re-opening date could be postponed if the situation becomes more challenging.

The decision on whether schools re-open or not is not solely decided by the Ministry of Education but by senior state officials, said U Ko Law Min.

“We’ll re-open the schools if the situation becomes normal. If not, we will have to move to a later date. We can’t say exactly when yet. We’ll re-open the schools when we can get the situation under control. No one can say exactly if the situation will allow us to re-open in June, he said.

As of 1pm on April 29, there are a total of 150 COVID-19 positive cases in Myanmar including six deaths and 16 recoveries. – Translated
