KADUNA: 17 Medical Students Have Tested Positive For Coronavirus

After being recalled for examinations, 17 medical students from the Kaduna State University (KASU) have tested positive for coronavirus.

Speaking on this and confirming the news,  Comrade Tukur Abdulkadir , Chairman KASU Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), stated that;

 “As you are aware, the management of Kaduna State University has opened the university and plans to conduct examination beginning from Monday, 19th of October, 2020.

“To this moment, Kaduna State Government has not officially announced the re-opening of tertiary institutions. Although the 2019/2020 academic session has been significantly affected by Covid-19 lockdown, re-opening the university at this material time is tantamount to trading the lives of students and staff for the conduct of the examination.

“The decision by the management of KASU to re-open is in gross violation of the Covid-19 Protocol as highlighted by the Presidential Task Force (PTF) and the National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).

“This action also violates the standard provision and regulations guiding conduct of University examinations.

“Let this be known to the general public, almost all the guidelines as stipulated by PTF/NCDC are not in existence in Kaduna State University at the moment.

“Students congregate very closely without facemask, and hostels are overcrowded. It is on record that some weeks ago, 17 out of about 50 medical students who were recalled for examination tested positive to Covid-19.”
