In the video, the national incident manager of the taskforce, Mukhtar Muhammed said:


“Now, the PTF is watching this very closely, we are monitoring what is going on and if we find out that cases continue to rise in the country and we start to have incidences in schools, certainly, we will have the schools closed.’’

Muhammed stated that the reopening of schools across the country should have been delayed till a later date.
He, however, stated that the task force is monitoring academic institutions across the country to ensure that they all comply with the COVID-19 safety measures.
