Coronavirus: PTF Speaks On Full Reopening Of Schools

PTF has spoken on the full reopening of schools amid coronavirus in Nigeria.

NewsOne Nigeria reports that the President Task Force on COVID-19 warned state governments on Monday against the plan to reopen schools fully nationwide.

Speaking on during the daily briefing on Monday, the Chairman of PTF and Secretary to Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, stressed that states should be guided by the experiences of countries like the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany and France.

The PTF Chairman, however, maintained that the President Task Force is not against the preparations by some states to fully reopen schools.

SGF Mustapha said: “The Presidential Task Force appreciates ongoing calls for the reopening of the education sector. And indeed, some sub-nationals are already making preparations for such.”

“Whilst the PTF does not discourage such preparations, we need to be guided by experiences from countries such as Germany, France, the US, and the UK where the opening of schools in some cities led to confirmed cases and fatalities.”
