Panic In UNILAG As Students In Hostels Contract COVID-19
There was fear on Tuesday at the University of Lagos (UNILAG), Akoka, as some students of the institution, who reside in hostels on campus were reportedly confirmed infected with COVID-19. Deputy Vice-Chancellor of the university (Academics and Research), Professor Oluwole Familoni, confirmed the development to Newsmen on Tuesday night but said he would not want to comment further as the University Senate would meet today over the matter after which the management would make its findings and position public.
The identities of students involved and how they contracted the virus and the hospitals where they were tested positive are yet to be ascertained by Nigerian Tribune as of the time of filing this report around 8.00 p.m.
It was gathered from some students and members of staff of the university some students residing in about four different halls of residence (name withheld) contracted the virus and had already been asked to go on self isolation at home.
