Three students at the College of Medicine, Lagos University Teaching Hospital have tested positive for COVID-19.

This prompted the management of the institution to shut down the hostels at the College.

In a statement issued on Thursday night by the Coordinator, Centre for Information Press and Public Relations (CIPPR), Ademola Adekoya, the affected students have been isolated and are currently receiving treatment.

The statement read, “In addition, stakeholders are also informed that: Roommates of the three students who tested positive and their associates are being tested; the College already isolated the affected three (3) students and has commenced contact tracing of all affected students.

“The hostel facilities were immediately closed for decontamination upon confirmation of the status of the affected students; all students of the College have been advised to proceed home to self-isolate for the next fourteen (14) days from where their health status will be monitored by the College. Phone numbers/contacts of all students are already obtained to that effect. Any students showing symptoms at home are to contact the College through dedicated lines for necessary assistance/treatment.

“Meanwhile, the College has handed treatment packs to all three who tested positive; the College is also providing psychological support to the three students who tested positive and their roommates.

“Parents, guardians and the general public are assured that the safety of all staff and students is of top priority and the Lagos State University as a whole will continue to enforce compliance with Covid-19 guidelines and protocols to ensure the safety of all within her campuses.
