All COVID-19 Positive Students Now Back To Class – FG



Minister of State for Education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, has announced the recovery of students who tested positive for COVID-19 in the ongoing 2020 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

Nwajiuba, who made the announcement at the 62nd Joint National Briefing of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19, said the students have returned to classes after treatment.

According to him, all the students have tested negative, stressing;

We have confirmed that all of them are back to class. They have all been discharged. We do not have any further cases.

There were four in Gombe, there was one in Kwara and there were few in Bayelsa, but those of them have been discharged as they all tested negative.

Nwajiuba added that the Buhari-led government was still getting feedback from the field.

Speaking on plans to reopen 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.
