The NCDC has given a breakdown on cases in various states and I would use this to analyze states that are likely not to resume. This may be coming as a shock to you but there are facts to prove that the states listed below are likely not to resume school next month.
The resumption of school has been a big issue for the federal government and citizens of the country. Teachers and students are finding it unbearable but the constant rise in the number of COVID-19 cases can disrupt the resumption of school activities.
The ban on school was lifted by the federal government but schools are yet to resume in more than 30 states. Our hopes has been lifted up as there are signs showing that some state government are putting in measures to aid school resumption in their various states.
Despite these measures, there are states that may not resume school based on the analysis below. This analysis is based on the NCDC breakdown of COVID-19 cases 7 days ago and within the last two days.
The COVID-19 confirmed, active, discharged and death cases as at 27 July has seen Lagos, FCT, OYO, Edo and Rivers as the states with the highest number of COVID-19 cases. The states who are likely not to resume school next month despite resumption hopes from the state government is based on my own opinion and findings.
I will use the NCDC Tweet breakdown, to analyze my findings and opinion.
Plateau state government has discharged more than half number the number of confirmed cases according to the NCDC report. They are still yet to reduce or curb the spread of the virus as the number of cases increased from 52 to 54 as at 20 and 26 July respectively.
4. Rivers State
On 20 July, NCDC tweeted the number of active COVID-19 cases for that day and I observed that Rivers state has just 6 confirmed case of COVID-19. On 25 and 26 July the number of cases increased drastically to 40 and 16 respectively.
The state government is likely not to resume school if the number of confirmed cases keep rising. I urge ever citizen of Rivers state to do well by adhering to all possible safety protocols to avoid contacting COVID-19 so as to help the government make better decision of approving the resumption of schools for these students.
The northern state with the second largest number of confirmed cases as at 27 July is likely not to resume school. On the 20 July number of confirmed cases was 35, while on the 25 and 26 July, it rose to 50 and 16 cases respectively as tweeted on the NCDC page. Thou there is a decrease in the number of confirmed case on 26, there is still a massive increase in COVID-19 cases on the 25 July.
Every citizen of the state should try and adhere strictly to the guidelines put in place by the NCDC.
Lets see if the number of cases will begin to reduce as the citizens of this state try to curb the spread.
This is the state on the list whose schools are currently in section but they stand a chance on not resuming school activities after the State governor announced the full resumption of academic academics from next month. As at 20 July number of confirmed cases was at 26, but there was a turn around after the number of confirmed cases increased to 20 and 53 cases on the 25 and 26 July respectively.
There is need for its citizens to work hard to end the spread of COVID-19 cases in order for the governor not to go back on his words. Remember Safety is first.
Despite all efforts put by the lagos state government the still have mostly three digit figures on daily basis. The State government has announced the resumption of school activities on 3 of August but are likely not to resume if the rise of COVID-19 cases keep increasing.
On 20 July it recorded 100 number of cases but rose to 123 and 156 cases on the 25 and 26 July respectively. Every citizen of the state should not neglect the safety precautionary measures in order to ascertain the resumption of school.
