Although for a good reason, the possible extension of school resumption dates might not do much to prevent the spread of covid-19.
I believe that we are gradually approaching a phase where we have to come to terms with so-existing with the virus.
But in Nigeria, a country where people troop in and out of the crowded market everyday, public transportation doesn’t respect the rule of social distancing and most people have given up on the preventive measure of using a nose mask, why do schools have to be closed to curb the spread of the virus?
Why not enforce a strict daily preventive routine that will enable people and students go about their normal lives without spreading or contracting the virus?
Is it possible to achieve this in Nigeria? Or is this method equivalent to building castles in the air and the lockdown on schools will proof more effective?
