In an attempt to deter the spread of the pandemic coronavirus, Ilorin University on Sunday ordered its international students to return for a medical examination.
The director, Center for International Education, CIE, of the institution, Professor Felicia Olasheinde-Williams, delivered the directive in a letter to the international students of the school.
The letter, a copy of which was obtained by journalists in Ilorin on Sunday, said the directive became necessary to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus on campus.
She said that all returning international students should go to the University clinic for a medical examination "in order to prevent the spread of the virus on and off campus."
Keep in mind that this medical examination is an important requirement to keep your scholarship with the University.
"As such, he is ordered to strictly adhere to the directive immediately upon arrival," said Olasheinde-Williams.
Covid-19, an outbreak of respiratory disease caused by a new coronavirus, was first detected in China and has now spread to more than 100 locations worldwide, including the United States, Europe, and Africa.
