"This is to reduce the risk of Covid-19 transmission that could happen outside the school during the festive season and could increase the transmission in education institutions, " said Education Minister Datuk Dr Mohd Radzi Md Jidin in his Facebook page.
Early today, we reported that more schools are ordered to shut down for 2 days due to Covid-19 infection.
