The Ministry of Education of the Government of National Accord (GNA), announced suspended study at all levels of education, for a period of two weeks from Sunday, March 15, as a measure of prevention against the Coronavirus due to its detection in neighboring countries.

The Minister of Education, Mohamed Amari, said that the precaution comes after meetings with the Minister for Health. Amari called on parents, teachers and staff to take the necessary preventative and detection measures to assist in advising students of the dangers of mingling and the possible infection in public places.

The parallel government in Eastern Libya also announced that schools will be suspended for a period of two weeks for the same reason.
