WITH the risk of infection with Ebola virus disease significantly reduced in Lagos State, the government has advised all nursery, primary and secondary schools in the state to resume for the 2014/2015 academic session on Monday, September 22.

Giving the assurance in a statement signed by the Special Adviser on Information and Strategy, Mr Lateef Raji, in Lagos, on Sunday, the government added that health professionals working on Ebola outbreak also agreed with government that schools were safe to resume on the said date.

The statement said with the current development, there was no known carrier of the disease in the state.

The state government, the statement stated, had developed and would deploy all resources necessary to promptly take into custody, any person suspected to be infected with the disease.

Aside promising to train and sensitise students, vendors, teachers and non-academic staff on Ebola, the state government also promised to ensure adequate environmental sanitation.

The government, however, urged everyone to be vigilant, as the disease remained in other countries within the sub-region.
