About 10 Persons Died From COVID-19 In University Of Ibadan – Vice Chancellor | Sahara Reporters
He expressed concerns that people were still taking the infection for granted.
Jul 23, 2021The Acting Vice Chancellor of the University of Ibadan, Oyo State, Professor Adebola Ekanola, on Friday said that about 10 deaths were recorded from people in the university due to the COVID-19 pandemic.The VC stated these during a virtual meeting of deans and heads of the departments of the university which was organised by the UI COVID-19 emergency response team.
Ekanola noted that “there has been a lot of laxity on personal protective measures because many assumed that they are safe from the infection.“Although the university so far is lucky not to have been badly affected by the pandemic, the students and staff of the institution need to take charge and be responsive in ensuring that no COVID-19 case is recorded in the university.”
According to him, the risk of the pandemic is higher when the academic session started and therefore, individuals’ health should be prioritised above other pursuits of life.Professor Ekanola said that a task force to emphasise and encourage high compliance of students and staff of the university to wear face masks, ensure hand washing and social distancing would begin work in the school. headtopics.com
