Kyambogo University final year student tests positive for COVID-19
Final year students at Kyambogo University are living in fear after one student tested positive for Covid-19.
The patient is a third-year student pursuing a Bachelor of Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR) course.
Last week, the student developed COVID-19 signs and she reported to the university medical centre and was advised to go for a Covid-19 test at Makerere University, where she tested positive.
She is now receiving treatment at Namboole COVID-19 treatment facility. Two other students who have been staying with her in Northern Hall, a university hall of residence have been quarantined.
Students are currently doing the end of semester two exams which kicked off on 16th November and will end next month.
This is the second COVID-19 case outbreak reported in the university. A few weeks back, the office of the dean of faculty of vocational studies was closed after one of the staff tested positive for the novel coronavirus
