Determined to prevent an explosion of coronavirus infection, the Senate of the University of Lagos has directed all students to vacate the halls of residence immediately.
Similarly, the university said it would resume virtual lectures from July 26, 2021.
This was the outcome of an emergency meeting of the Senate held this afternoon.
Vice Chancellor, Prof Oluwatoyin Ogundipe had summoned the emergency meeting over the third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic in the institution.
A ‘COVID-19 pandemic update’ issued by the university earlier confirmed that the medical centre recorded an increase in the number of patients with COVID-19 symptoms.
The COVID-19 Update issued by the university read in part: “The University of Lagos Medical Centre wishes to inform all members of the University of Lagos Community about what appears to be the start of a potential 3rd wave of the COVID-19 Pandemic in Lagos State.”
