Minister for Federal Education Shafqat Mahmood has said the third wave of Coronavirus is serious and requires careful review.

In a tweet, he said a meeting of all education and health ministers will be held at National Command and Operation Centre in Islamabad on Wednesday to take a decision regarding opening or further closure of educational institutions.

Shafqat Mahmood said health of students, teachers and staff is primary consideration.

He is also of the view that physically present at the institutions is more important for training and education but the situation is not in hand now. The government is working for the online classes across country for the safety of students and teachers.

Minister for Federal Education and Professional Training Shafqat Mahmood has said that a uniform curriculum will be implemented across the country to improve quality of education.

Talking to newsmen in Lahore today (Monday), he said the Punjab government has constituted a committee to introduce a uniform curriculum.

He said high level meeting will be held at the NCOC on Wednesday to take a decision regarding opening or further closure of educational institutions.

He said it is a very difficult decision of the government to close educational institutions as there are around 20 million children still out of schools in the country.

He said the government launched a Tele School TV channel to educate children at their homes in the wake of COVID-19.
