Education will not stop, and will continue unhindered in the country under any circumstances, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai said on Monday.

Sheikh Mohammed tweeted a picture of him attending an e- learning session in a school.

"Today I attended the first virtual school day in a public school. One million and two hundred thousand students were enrolled in our government schools, private sector schools and our national universities. Schools stopped and universities remain closed.  But education will not stop, " tweeted His Highness. "Education, like health, will not stop in any circumstances," he added.

Over a million students across the country resumed their classes on Sunday through e-learning as educational institutes remain closed in the country as part of the government measures to curb the spread of coronavirus.
