|Concerns About Resuming Classes by Lindsay2: 3:36am On Sep 17|
1,907,983 new people have been added to the list of COVID-19 cases worldwide over the last 7 days, while 1,228 new people have been infected in Nigeria from September 7 to 14.
17,184 people were tested across Nigeria within the same time span. Compared to the 1,209 cases that were discovered last week, the number for this week has seen a slight increase signalling an increase in rate of infection.
Nigerian Universities begin plans for Resumption
While the ASUU strike continues and the tertiary students are currently at home, universities in Nigeria have begun planning for the next academic session.
Most federal universities have commenced the screening, with only a few like the Obafemi Awolowo University deferring it until the government announces the date for schools to reopen.
The universities of Ibadan, Ilorin, Port-Harcourt and Uyo will soon be done with their respective screening exercises. The University of Benin is set to begin screening candidates from November 23 via a computer-based test.
State universities including Kwara state university, Kaduna state university and Delta state university have also commenced the process of screening new students for admittance.
Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University in Uli, Anambra state has already resumed classes for its year-one students while resumption date for the returning students will be announced soon.
I think that if students are not required to study at home or teach online courses, there is no need for everyone to take risks. The epidemic situation in the United States is so serious now that the education system has serious problems.

Lindsay2:Those countries you quoted there have started academic activities already, need we wait for another year before starting our academic activities?
The virus is here to stay for a while hence activities need to under strict adherence to precautionary measures. Abi Na till 2022 you want make we reopen schools?? Be considerate at least.
And I can't see you complaining about the elections coming up in 3 days time, you're trying to deter innocent kids from pursing their career chosen ambition
Nawa for you
It's a choice. When schools reopen, don't go, prevent your kids and siblings from going either, then the virus will pass over you and your family
