SEARCH BellaNaija BellaNaija NEWS#COVID19 Updates: Minister of State for Education says Schools will Reopen Soon but There is No Specific Date YetBellaNaija.com Published 22 hours ago on May 22, 2020 By BellaNaija.com 339 new cases of COVID-19 recorded in Nigeria According to the Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC), out of the 339 new cases, 139 were recorded in Lagos, 28 in Kano, 28 in Oyo, 25 in Edo, 22 in Katsina, 18 in Kaduna, 14 in Jigawa, 13 in Yobe, 13 in Plateau, 11 in FCT, 8 in Gombe, 5 in Ogun, 4 in Bauchi, 4 in Nasarawa, 3 in Delta, 2 in Ondo, 1 in Rivers, and 1 in Adamawa State. The agency says there are now 7016 confirmed cases of COVID-19, 1907 patients have been discharged while 211 deaths have so far been recorded. ********************** Schools will reopen soon but no specific date is given Minister of State for Education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, made the clarification on Thursday during the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 news conference in Abuja following rumours making the round the Federal Government would reopen schools in the next two weeks. He disclosed that there are plans to soon reopen schools nationwide, however, it won’t happen in two weeks as being speculated in some quarters. The minister said there is no exact date yet for schools to resume, adding that schools will be reopened after they are ”resourced properly”. According to the Nigerian Tribune, Nwajiuba said: The issue around reopening has nothing to do with the availability of the schools or not. It has to do with national governance. The idea of shutting down the schools has nothing to do with the schools per se. You heard the chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, the SGF, keep saying it is a national response. It is a single national response and everything we do flows from that. When they determine, I’m sure you have seen all the experts here, that there is the measure of safety to which we can expose our children, we will gladly do that. We are watching and we are working with all bodies within and outside the country. The five countries of West African Examination Council (WAEC) are meeting and I just came out of a meeting with African Union (AU) Ministers of Education, everybody is concerned as you are. We hope to reopen very soon. This morning, I met with the Ministry of Science and Technology. We are looking at putting a system in place that can disinfect every child as he goes into a school and disinfects him as he goes out. If we resource our schools properly we can begin to reopen. But we must be able to ensure that the children go in safe and come out safe and not become a conduit for further infection in society. ********************* 13 COVID-19 patients discharged in Lagos State Thirteen more COVID-19 patients have been discharged from different Isolation centres in Lagos State.
