Schools will continue in a safe environment, says Education Minister

PETALING JAYA: The easy way out would be to close schools but data from the Health Ministry shows there is no reason to worry, says Datuk Dr Mohd Radzi Md Jidin.

The Education Minister said closing schools may not be the right decision as data shows that clusters linked to educational institutions within the ministry is only 4.8%, with a total of 2,274 cases in all its institutions.

“If data shows that the situation is such that we have to close (schools), then we will do so accordingly.

“But as of now, we are committed to ensuring that schools will continue in a safe environment, ” he said at a press conference on Monday (April 26).

The nation’s total sporadic cases at the moment stands at 60.8%, while those linked to clusters are 39.2%, he said.
