Also used are hand sanitizers. When the children enter the school, the face mask is discarded and the face cover is used mainly for ventilation.
In Nigeria we must adapt to coronavirus as the country can not be locked down until eternity, Governor Ayade noted.
Governor Ben Ayade said I think the federal government should be eager to promote the re-establishment of schools because the coronavirus has come to live with us and the fact is that countries that have tried to re-establish schools have had to deal with the prevalence of the virus, so how long can we expect as a country? So maybe we need to follow a new lifestyle which will incorporate coronavirus as part of our lifestyle.
