Following the spike in the cases of coronavirus across the country, the federal government has announced that all schools across levels remain closed.

The government made this known through a circular dated Friday, May 8, channelled to heads of commissions and regulatory bodies in the education sector.

Ministry of Education, through the memo, warned the authorities across education levels to dismiss the trending fake news that there has been an order for the reopening of the schools, Vanguard reports.

Legit.ng notes that the circular was sent to the executive secretaries, National Universities Commission (NUC), National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) National Commission for Colleges of Education (NCCE) and the director, Basic and Secondary Education (BSE).

"Further to our earlier circular, FME/PSE/HE/1041/C 1/Vol.1/137 of 19th March 2020, this is to confirm that all schools shall remain closed as we monitor developments on the containment of COVID-19.

"This is without prejudice to officers on essential services and other operational exigencies as may be determined by the chief executive of each institution.

"All chief executives and other stakeholders are to ignore 'fake news' on the subject matter in the social media as the situation is under constant review and any decision on the resumption shall be conveyed through the appropriate channels," part of the memo read.

We need to think beyond what we're seeing at the moment. if schools should be allowed to open now, children can't take precautionary measures as much as adults who are not even allowed to go religious gatherings. And if any child gets dis pandemic from school, and comes home, he'll certainly relate with with d family and they'll all get infected. So opening schools should be the last decision to take with the situation at hand now.
