Abstract

The new coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a pandemic disease, affecting several millions of lives. As a way of curbing the spread of COVID-19, the governments of many developing countries recently imposed massive lockdown on its populace, involving closure of schools. Realistically, the closure of schools cannot be eternal, since school education of citizens is a vital component of sustainable development. Since there is a high possibility that schools will be opened in future, we recommend that relevant public health stakeholders involved in the prevention and control of COVID-19 should adopt the use of exercise book covers to relay information to school children on how to prevent and control the spread of COVID-19 disease.

Keywords: Children, Sensitization, School, COVID-19, Coronavirus.
