Nigeria reopens secondary schools, airports for domestic flights


Nigeria is reopening schools for the graduating class on the advice of a task force that students get help in preparing for examinations.

The chairman of the presidential task force on COVID-19 Boss Mustapha said, the federal government also lifted the ban on interstate movement outside curfew hours and reopened airports for domestic flights.

Mustapha also said, President Muhammadu Buhari approved the extension of the phased lockdown for four weeks, meaning the 10pm – 4am nationwide curfew, restrictions on mass gatherings and sporting activities will continue.

Nigeria’s mandate for face masks in public places remains in effect.

So far, Nigeria has confirmed more than 25,100 COVID-19 cases and more than 570 deaths.

Nigeria will let people travel between its states outside curfew hours from July 1, a senior official said on Monday as authorities moved to relax some coronavirus restrictions.
