The Federal Government of Nigeria has said that resumption of academic activities will only start in the country after schools have been disinfected against COVID-19.

The government addded that the disinfection of schools against COVID-19 will begin on Tuesday, in preparation for school opening.

Minister of Environment, Muhammad Mahmood,made this disclosure on Monday while speaking at the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19.

Mahmood  explained that the delay in the decontamination process was there they would be enough teams on the ground to carry out the exercise.

“The delay is because it is better to disinfect and decontaminate within a short period of time so that the kids will be going back into these classes when they have been freshly decontaminated.

 “This is because the chemicals we use are chemicals that are not long-lasting; they have short contact time to do their job. So we will be getting this done before Monday when they (schoolchildren) will be back to use these classes,” Mahmmood said.
