Chairman, Ondo State Inter-ministerial Committee on Covid-19, Prof. Adesegun Fatusi, has disclosed that schools in the state would soon resume for academic activities.

Fatusi who announced this today in Akure during a news briefing on Covid-19 said the resumption of educational institutions in the state was under review.

While explaining that the committee was aware that some states had released a timetable regarding the resumption of schools, he said, “we will also do a comprehensive review across all sectors in the course of the week.”

“As we are watching what other states are doing, we are also watching the state of the epidemic in Ondo State.

“One of the fastest ways to learn is through other people’s experiences.

“It will also help us in our modelling of what is likely to happen, so you can be sure we are reviewing the guidelines regarding our education sector.
