The Professor of Biopharmaceutical and
Pharmaceutical Microbiology also stated that the School’s environment had earlier been fumigated for decontamination against the dreaded COVID-19.
Prof. Esimone emphasized that series of meetings have been held with the School’s top echelon on global best practices in anticipation of both Primary and High School resumption although the Exit classes have been earmarked for recommencement of an academic exercise.
Prof. Esimone also posited that non-pharmaceutical methods of prevention such as wearing Facemask and the use of hand sanitizers must be complied with by all stakeholders involved.
