Addressing journalists at the COVID-19 Edo State Infectious Disease and Isolation Centre, the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Health, Dr Osamwonyi Irowa, said available data showed that more minors below the age of 10 had been infected with the disease.

He said if schools were allowed to open, the children will go back home to meet their parents or guardians who are mostly likely to be older persons, which could be disastrous.

He said,

“As we speak today, we are perfecting plans for school reopening. Some of these teachers are also not young. They are also among those we are protecting.”
