He added that the state will have to adopt a new lifestyle of living and incorporate COVID-19 as a normality in their lifestyle. Stating that the students stay at home the more their moral decadence and the more indiscipline they will be. 

Adding that the more they stay at home the lazier they will become at getting back to school and also getting started with incorporating the current pandemic into their lifestyle.

He emphasized that this has happened in China and kids are going back to schools with their nose masks and face shields and that students are allowed to wear only shields while in class to allow for ventilation and easy breathing.

He continued that he believes that it is also time for the federal government to also show love and support the state. And that the mass production of PPE is of more advantage for health practitioners from nurses down to radiographers as they must be equipped with the PPE for them to work.
