She said the decision to re-open the institutions was reached at a meeting with ‘stakeholders’, adding that the government had decontaminated the schools.
Ms Mahmoud said government would provide Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to all the institutions to protect students and check the spread of coronavirus.
