The President of the Nigerian Medical Association, NMA, Prof Innocent Ujah, yesterday, said his counsel against the reopening of schools in view of the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic was seen as being against the progress of the nation’s education sector.
He stated this after the World Health Organisation, WHO, warned that the world should prepare for a more deadly virus than the coronavirus, noting that the Covid-19 pandemic was serving as a wake-up call.
Meanwhile, in order to curtail the second wave of covid19, Ogun State government banned crossover services in all worship centres across the state.
While, Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, yesterday, approved the suspension of the 12am to 4 am curfew earlier imposed on states by FG, saying that officials of the State’s Task Force on Covid-19 would ensure strict compliance to the guidelines and advisories.
The NMA president, Prof Ujah said: “When the government wanted to reopen the schools, I cautioned them and said if the schools must be reopened, there must be necessary preparation to prevent the children from contracting the virus.
“One parent wrote the Presidential Task Force on Covid-19 that I don’t want people to go to school and that I was being wicked. Now, we all know better, a lot of children who sat for the last WASSCE were infected.”
Concerning the news about some corp members have also been infected, Ujah added that those are some of the things that could have been prevented if sufficient precautions were taken before reopening the schools.
Prof Ujah also lamented the disregard for social distancing by Nigerians, saying this had also contributed to the rising Covid-19 cases.
He added that, social or physical distancing has failed. Which was observed during the campaign for the governorship elections in Edo and Ondo States. That the country needs to do a lot of sensitisation to ensure that Nigerians comply with all the Covid-19 protocols.
