Dr. Faisal Sultan (Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Health) and Education Minister Mr. Shafqat Mahmood held a press conference today. Mr. Shafqat Mahmood said, almost 50-million students are enrolled in schools, colleges, and universities. This is the reason why we have to look at the educational institutes when it comes to the safety and the spread of disease. Mr. Shafqat said the health and safety conditions in educational institutes of Sindh, Gilgit Baltistan, and Baluchistan are satisfactory. But in Punjab, KPK, and AJK things have been a bit alarming.
This is why educational institutes in cities like; Faisalabad, Gujranwala, Lahore, Gujrat, Multan, Rawalpindi, Sialkot, Islamabad, Muzaffarabad, Peshawar will remain closed for Spring Holidays from Monday 15th March to 28th March. But educational institutes where send-up exams or exams of the same nature are being conducted are an exception to this closure. The rest of the provinces and the cities have the authority to implement partial or complete lockdown as and when they deem to be fit after accessing the health conditions.

Mr. Shafqat ne kaha k health aur safety ki conditions Sindh, Gilgit Baltistan aur Baluchistan main theek hain. Lakin Punjab, KPK aur AJK main halaat kuch pareshan kun hain.
