“If our universities and research institutes are mobilised and encouraged by the Federal Government, they will find a solution to the scourge of coronavirus,” he said.

The union leader stressed that the closure of schools to curb COVID-19 spread was not the solution.

He told the authorities to ensure provisions of facilities in schools to enable them function safely.

“From the presentation of the government so far, most deaths recorded were from the ages of 60 above and the range of youths was not much. The closure of schools over COVID-19 is not the option,” he added.
