Since the occurrence of the Covid-19 Pandemic, the only trusted way that has been known to man, to manage and control the spread of the Corona Virus, is social distancing, wearing of the nose mask, washing of hands and body thoroughly with soap, and the application of an alcohol base hand sanitizer.

The Corona virus is still on the spread, though the reality of a permanent cure is what we hope for, until then, I believe the Federal Government should put a hold on the decision to reopen schools across the country, Nigeria, for obvious reasons to be mentioned soon.

It is well known to many that education is very important, as it is the key to economic growth and civilization, but we all should agree on the fact, that only a person alive and healthy can give much thought to education.

An unsettling environment, only depending on social distancing, wearing of the nose mask, washing the body with soap and application of the alcohol base hand sanitizer, to fight the spread of the Corona Virus, can't possibly give into the reopening of schools just yet, mainly because of the following reasons, as suggested by my opinion below.

1. Overcrowding of classrooms and school premises:

Overcrowding totally goes against the social distancing rule, which has been a very vital and productive method of slowing down the spread of the Corona Virus. Students coming together again into schools in the previous condition and method of learning may prove fatal, when considering the existence of the Corona Virus in such an environment, as schools.

2. Faster spread of the Corona Virus:

Taking for instance that a school pupil get in contact with the Corona Virus, the spread will be faster as the students that converge in a classroom are too many, and each of them are mostly from different families and homes, such a pupil would not only infect classmates, but also the families of classmates.

3. Availability of e-learning:

All thanks to the advancement of computer technology which has been able to bring the world to the reach of our finger tips, with the help of the internet, on our computer screen and mobile phones devices.

Students can now learn at the comfort of their homes, with the help of the newly developed app, Zoom app, it allows video conference communication for up to a hundred person, this way teachers can tutor their students without having them to converge in a physical class room.

4. Recreations activities:

Games and other kinds of recreational activities especially for students in the primary and secondary school level is inevitable, which brings them too close to each other, which is gains the social distancing rule used as one of the most effective method of controlling the spread of the Corona Virus.

If students are given the slightest opportunity to engage in recreational activities while at school, they stand a huge risk of contacting the Corona Virus as the social distancing rule can't be kept during most recreational games amongst students.

I believe with these opinion of mine, I have been able to prove beyond every reasonable doubt, the reasons the Federal Government should put a hold on the decision to reopen schools.
