No possibility of univeristies being immune to COVID-19 pandemic – USAf

JOHANNESBURG – Universities South Africa (USAf) said that while the coronavirus infection rate had been contained so far on campuses across the country, some institutions remained vulnerable to outbreaks.Currently, under level 3 lockdown, only 33% of students are allowed back on campus.The organisation said that at least 1,200 people had tested positive for COVID-19 while 28 staff members and four students had died.Spokesperson Ahmed Bawa: “At the moment, the universities are performing approximately 35,000 screenings every day and this is largely for students who leave the campus and come to campus on a daily basis. The universities are part of the big social fabric of our society, so there’s no possibility of the universities being completely immune to the pandemic.”Download the EWN app to your iOS or Android device.Source: EWN
