He explained that before now the virus was believed to only be transmittable through droplets that emanate from the nose and the mouth and fall to the ground.

Ihekweazu, however, stated that studies of new infections show that the disease may also be airborne.

In another report, Professor Peter Okebukola, a former executive secretary of the National Universities Commission (NUC), expressed support for the sudden U-turn by the federal government not to allow Nigerian candidates to participate in 2020 West African Examinations Council (WAEC) which has been fixed for between August 3 and September 5.

He said this was not the ideal date as it was still unsafe for Nigeria to reopen schools either gradually or wholly, let alone allow the students to gather for any exam.

The coronavirus pandemic at the moment in the country is critical based on the rising statistics and the opinions of health experts, and great caution must, therefore, be taken.

He said it would not do the country any good to expose students to the health hazards associated with the virus.

Okebukola, who is a professor of science and computer education said even at that students would need a minimum of six weeks of revision when back in schools to prepare well for any external exam having been home for about four months, otherwise, there would be mass cheating and failure in the exams.
