Schools have reopened in Nigeria, despite calls for them to remain closed for several months due to the rising number of Covid cases, APA reports citing BBC.

Nigeria has recorded more than 10,000 infections in the last week.

It is the first time students are back in school since mid-December, when the country declared a second wave of new infections.

University students are also returning to in-person learning. They have been at home for almost a year due to a strike by lecturers.

Nigeria has recorded more than 110,387 cases and 1,435 deaths.
