According to Ismail Sabri, Covid-19 has changed the way how learning and all educational institutions are now practicing the Online Home Teaching and Learning (PdPR) system.

Therefore, we allow computer and telecommunication shops as well as book and stationery shops to operate during the NRP period. It is, among others, to ensure that teachers and students can conduct PdPR without interruption.
