The Ministry of Education made it clear that it would take a decision to stop all studies, if and when the Ministry’s Scientific Advisory Committee recommended it.
On the subject, the Scientific Advisory Committee in the Ministry recommended the stoppage of all study for one week, following the Eid Al-Adha celebrations, due to fears of a sharp increase in cases following the religious holiday for the welfare of all students and teaching staff.
