Lagos has remained in the lead on coronavirus with 36,101 confirmed cases and 256 deaths. This was even as the minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, said that the Federal Government is reviewing the January 18 date for resumption of schools across Nigeria.
Nigeria’s coronavirus caseload reached the 100, 000 mark yesterday, January 10 after the country’s centre for disease control confirmed 1,024 infections in 17 states in the country.
The country has 100,087 confirmed coronavirus cases and 1,358 fatalities as of yesterday night. However, 80,030 patients have been discharged from the various care centres in the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
Reacting to the second wave of the virus, the education minister, at the Presidential Task Force on cornavirus briefing in Abuja, said the government is disturbed over the increasing pandemic cases in Nigeria.
“On the January 18 resumption date for schools, we are reviewing it. We are going to review it.
“At the PTF meeting today, we considered it, and tomorrow (Tuesday), the ministry is going to take it up.”
Several states in the country had directed all schools including the tertiary institutions to reopen for academic activities on January 18.
