South Korean government is due to announce their latest decision on school openings, which have been already pushed back by more than a month amid the COVID-19 outbreak.
Schools and kindergartens are scheduled to open on April 6th, but authorities are mulling over opening online classes as the novel coronavirus cases show no sign of abating.
The announcement is due as early as this Monday or Tuesday.
A member of the Education Committee said date for opening schools cannot differ by regions, as the curriculum is linked to college entrance exams for high-schoolers.
The government added it will be holding in-depth discussions with health authorities before announcing their decision.
As of Sunday, KCDC said a total of 604 confirmed coronavirus cases in minors, those under the age of 19 years old.
