The Minister of State for Education, Mr Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, made this known on Monday in Abuja at the 62 Joint National Briefing of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19.
According to him, all the students have tested negative.
On plans to reopen tertiary institutions, he said the preparedness of tertiary institutions had been tabled before the PTF.
He also said the task force will look at the preparedness and use it to issue national guidance that tertiary institutions will use as a guide to reopen.
