The Federal government has maintained that schools would remain closed for now as the country’s total coronavirus infections top 10,000.

The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) and Chairman, Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha,  disclosed this on Monday in Abuja at the 38th joint national briefing of the task force.

He said the PTF is working to ensure that the Federal Ministry of Education develop guidelines and protocols for safe reopening of schools.

The SGF also warned that the nation is yet to reach the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic infection thus the citizens should brace up for more cases.
