She urged that schools should ensure that students were tutored on the need to constantly sanitise their hands after every educational activity in the classrooms and wear nose masks always.

"Schools are to enforce physical distancing where applicable and also provide facilities to reduce the risk of the infection amongst teachers and students.

"Disinfection of shoes and feet should be strongly encouraged for each student to reduce bacterial infection," Odeneye said.
