Breaking News: Kyambogo University Registers 50 New Covid-19 Cases As Positive Students Decline To Go Into Isolation

 

While addressing a presser at the university today, Kyambogo University Vice-Chancellor Prof Eli Katugunka said over 50 students are now known to be sick and according to the Director of Kyambogo Medical Center, the figure is likely to go up if physical contact between students and lecturers is not minimized.

Katugunka has therefore directed his staff to stop physical teaching and resort to online classes to avoid the risk of spreading the virus.

Kyambogo students last week staged a strike rejecting online teaching after 8 students were reported positive for Covid-19.

Katunguka further noted that those who are testing positive have refused to isolate themselves at their hostels and are insisting on reporting to campus hence increasing chances of spreading the virus further adding that all deans and heads of department should stop physical teaching and immediately on online lectures.

Katunguka added the government should reopen the Namboole stadium so that students who test positive are isolated there since the university does not have isolation facilities.
