The federal minister for education, Shafqat Mahmood, has announced to remove the restrictions on schools about conducting three classes per week as the Covid-19 cases are declining.

According to the federal education minister, the NCOC had already decided to remove the ban in the four cities from February 28.
In a tweet , Shafqat Mahmood stated “Today, in my tweet I just elaborated that from March 1 all schools of the country will hold regular classes under the SOPs”.
