    UNILAG Orders Students To Vacate Campus As Number Of COVID 19 Cases Rises


    Following a spike in confirmed COVID-19 cases among University of Lagos (UNILAG) students in the developing third wave of the epidemic, the institution’s management ordered students to depart the campus by 2 p.m. today.

    Prof. Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, the vice-chancellor, has also called an emergency meeting of the school’s Senate to discuss the situation.

    According to LEADERSHIP, two children have been confirmed positive for the disease, and the school has stepped up enforcement of its COVID-19 rules.

    Some students confirmed that university officials had advised them to leave campus today and that classes would be held online.

    The university also acknowledged that the medical center has seen an increase in the number of patients with COVID-19 symptoms in a COVID-19 pandemic update.

    As a result, the vice-chancellor has called an emergency Senate meeting to discuss the school’s third wave of sickness.

    The meeting, which is set to take place at the J. F. Ade Ajayi Auditorium, is likely to address the necessity for students to vacate their residence halls as well as the resumption of virtual courses, according to the announcement.

    The COVID-19 update issued by the university read,


    “The University of Lagos Medical Centre wishes to inform all members of the university community about what appears to be the start of a potential third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic in Lagos State.

    “The executive governor of Lagos State, Mr Babajide Sanwo-olu, in his press statement, issued on July 11, 2021, stated that since the beginning of July there has been a steep increase in the number of daily confirmed cases, with the test positivity rate going from 1.1% at the end of June 2021, to its current rate of 6.6% as at the 8th of July 2021. This is with a concurrent increase in the occupancy rate at Lagos State isolation centres.

    “The University of Lagos community has also been affected by this potential third wave, with an increase in the number of patients presented to the University of Lagos Medical Centre with flu-like symptoms which are similar to COVID-19.

    “The medical centre hereby assures all members of the university community that all necessary actions in line with the federal and Lagos State government guidelines have been taken regarding this potential threat in our community.
