Some students during the WASSCE who were tested positive for Corona virus have been discharged and are back in class after testing negative. This was made open by the minister of State For Education, Emeka Nwajiuba during a briefing by the presidential Task Force on Covid – 19 in Abuja.
“There were four in Gombe, there was one in Kwara and there were few in Bayelsa but this morning on my way inspecting schools that are in exam classes, those of them have been discharged as they all tested negative.
“We are still getting feedback from the field in case there are any new places where this may crop up.”
On the issue of reopening tertiary institutions, the Minister said the preparedness of tertiary institutions has been tabled before the task force. He said the Task Force will put together all the preparations and use it to issue national guidance that tertiary institutions will use as a guide to reopen schools.
