COVID-19: FG plans to disinfect schools nationwide

The Federal Government has said it plans to embark on the decontamination of schools across the country.

The Minister of Environment, Muhammad Mahmood, disclosed this at the Presidential Task Force briefing on COVID-19 in Abuja on Monday.

His words, “We are initiating a programme of decontaminating and disinfecting our schools before they open.

“Because subsequently in the phases (of easing the lockdown), I believe we will get to that point when we start opening the schools.

“So, we will be liaising with the Federal Ministry of Education to make sure we have the needed data to carry out the exercise.”

Although the minister did not state when the exercise would start, he said his ministry had been making efforts to commence the programme.

Recall that the Federal Ministry of Education had ordered the closure of schools nationwide prior to the total lockdown of Abuja, Lagos and Ogun States.
