The education minister said in a statement that as part of the lockdown in the province, educational institutions would remain closed as per Sindh’s Corona virus restrictions.
The situation of corona virus in Sindh and especially in Karachi is not satisfactory, the education minister added, adding that the decision would be reviewed on August 8.
