Covid-19: MUBS On Tenterhooks As Educational Institutions Turn Into Covid-19 Hot Spots

 

Makerere University Business School (MUBS) Principal Prof Wasswa Balunywa yesterday revealed that the administration has been getting reports of students falling sick in their hostels but it’s still unclear what the students are suffering from however, Balunywa fears that they may not be able to handle the situation if it turns out there’s a COVID-19 outbreak in the Students Community.

In a series of tweets, Balunywa revealed that students don’t have resources for both testing and treatment, adding that if it turns out to be COVID-19, they will have no option but to postpone end-of-semester exams in a bid to safeguard the health of both students and staff.

“We have reports of MUBS students falling sick in hostels as you may note in Social Media starting last Sunday. We have been to the Hostels establishing what is on the ground. Right now as I write a team is inspecting several hostels.” Balunywa tweeted

“We have agreed to work with Hostel owners and the Guild to get facts and together find solutions. As expected students don’t have Resources for both testing and treatment. If we establish COVID 19 cases, it will be out of our ability to handle.” he added

Balunywa added that they were advised by the government to give a report on the problem and see how it can guide or intervene. and further advised the MUBS staff to stay home unless they have to be at campus.

“Fortunately govt has requested us to give a report on the status of the problem for possible guidance on the way ahead. If there is no stabilization of situation we may have to delay exams so as to safeguard the health of both students and staff,” Balunywa added.
