The Commissioner for Health, Dr Tafida Abubakar, said 5,000 participants drawn from public and private schools in the state were taking part in the workshop.

According to him, the training goes beyond measures to check the spread of the virus, as it will also sensitise them about the importance of hand washing and good hygiene.
