A leading private university in Nigeria, Gregory University Uturu has revealed how it has been able to manage the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic to keep its campus free of the disease.
The university says following the outbreak of the disease in the first quarter of 2020, the school management reacted appropriately by rolling out multiple approaches geared towards preventing and mitigating the harsh consequences of the global scourge.
In a statement signed by ProGIMA, Prof Gregory Ibe Media Associates, the university among other measures put in place to respond to the pandemic immediately established a COVID-19 research team constituted by erudite scholars who have many years of industry experience in disease control, pharmacology, and pharmacogenetics.
According to the university, this helped it to begin scholarly investigations in earnest.
The statement partly read, “Result was the discovery of such preventive and curative drugs as ‘Sniff-Sniff’ and ‘Adonis Yellow’, which on approval by relevant government regulatory agency, will add impetus to the onslaught against COVID-19.
“Also, with the production of such preventive devices as pedal-powered handwashing machines, sanitizing Chambers, branded facemasks, and alcohol-based handitizers, the university has continued to set the pace in the task of proactive management of the pandemic thereby keeping her campuses free from COVID-19 infestation.
“A visitor to the recent 9th matriculation ceremony of the institution would have observed various strategies deployed by the university management to ensure strict compliance to operative safety measures. From the first gate visitors to the many campuses are subjected to temperature checks, hand washing and Sanitization bouts before being granted access to the event venue. The compulsory facemask-wearing campaign is personally championed by the Chancellor and Founder of the university Prof Gregory Ibe, who regularly embarks on unscheduled checks to enforce the practice on campus, with non-compliance attracting dire consequences.
“With these measures in place, Gregory University Uturu has definitely added health impetus to her already established status as the most conducive environment for knowledge transfer.”
