Management of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), has issued a public alert to the university community over the “astronomic upsurge” in COVID-19 cases on campus.
The alert, addressed to College Registrars, urged them to ensure that all veronica buckets are filled and used.
The Colleges were also directed to ensure strict compliance with the hand hygiene protocols and also the wearing of nose masks.
This is contained in a statement from the Deputy Registrar of the University.
According to the statement, the COVID-19 situation in the Ashanti Region appears to correspond with happenings within the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly.
It said the rising number of cases is a result of the general disregard for COVID-19 preventive protocols.
