The Aden-based government Tuesday decided to end the school year for the primary stage “prematurely” due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, the Aden’s- run SABA news agency reported.
The agency said the decision was made during a meeting between the Supreme National Emergency Committee for COVID-19 with the Saudi-backed Prime Minister Maeen Abdulmalik.
The agency added that the committee has accepted a proposal submitted by the minister of education to end the school year “early” for the primary stage.
The committee has directed the Ministers of Higher Education and Education to prepare a plan for high school and university students.
The legitimate Yemeni government suspended the school year in March as a precautionary measure against the coronavirus pandemic.
