Below is the full statement by Afe Babalola University 

The Management of Afe Babalola University, Ado-Ekiti, ABUAD, has read the official statement by Ekiti State Government on the American citizen who came to Ekiti State with suspected case of Covid-19. We commend the State Government for the steps it has taken in this matter and in particular its cooperation with ABUAD.

Like in the case of the outbreak of Ebola, ABUAD took some pro-active steps by ordering special personal protection equipment (PPE) from abroad in readiness for any eventuality. This enabled our highly skilled and competent healthcare professionals to manage this particular case while other Medical Centres rejected the said American contrary to global best practices in the Medical profession. We have also isolated those who had close contact with the victim while all the facilities used in managing the instant case have been fully disinfected.

We want to use this medium to thank all staff, students and parents for their understanding and for carrying out all instructions on egress and ingress. Before this incident, the university had put in place necessary precautionary measures to check anybody coming into and going out of the university for any reason whatsoever.

These steps were taken in the interest of the students, their parents and the university and this will remain in place.
