The management of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), yesterday, barred foreign students of the institution from returning for the current semester to prevent the spread of the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) to the university.
The management took the decision following the report that a female student of the university showed symptoms of EVD.
“Foreign students of OAU have been asked to stay back for the session; those around who have not gone out of the country have been screened. As of now the reported lady is Ebola free,” said Professor Bamitale Omole, Vice Chancellor of OAU, at a briefing on the update of the EVD case.
The university also said that no student would be allowed into the campus until after proper screening.
