Coronavirus: UNILORIN orders foreign students to proceed for medical examination


The University of Ilorin (UNILORIN) at the weekend instructed its returning international students to go for medical examinations.

Prof Felicia Olasheinde-Williams, Director, Centre for International Education (CIE), gave the directive in a letter addressed to the international students.

The letter, a copy of which was obtained by the media Sunday evening in Ilorin, stated that the directive was necessary to prevent the spread of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) on campus.

Olasheinde-Williams said all returning international students must proceed to the university clinic for medical examination in order to deter the spread of the virus within and outside the campus.
