Ebola: Unilorin to Screen Students




Ilorin (NAN) – The Vice-Chancellor of  the University of Ilorin, Abdu Ganiyu Ambali,  says all  students will  be screened  for the Ebola Virus Disease before entering  the campus.

Ambali stated this on Monday while unveiling preventive kits worth N1.2 million at the university’s health centre.

“The procurement of the anti-Ebola kits is part of the university’s preparedness to tackle the epidemic headlong,” the vice chancellor said.

The kits, he said, included face masks, boots, hand gloves, automatic soap dispenser, infrared thermometer and disposable bed spreads.

The vice-chancellor commended  members of the institution’s  Ebola Response Committee for their foresight and prompt  response.

Ambali, however, charged the university’s  health workers to be alert and  follow laid down procedures in the case of an outbreak.

The university’s Director of Health Services, Mary Ajiboye, who presented the equipment to the vice chancellor, said the kits were for the protection of staff and students.

“The committee will place the hand sanitisers in strategic locations on the campus such as the Senate Building, faculties, walkways  and  Unilorin FM station,” she said.
