The management of the Wisconsin International University College, Ghana (One of the earliest established private universities in Ghana located at Agbogba Junction near Kwabenya in the Greater Accra Region) has refuted claims that the institution has recorded a COVID-19 case(s) in a letter sighted by shstrendz.com dated 19th January 2021 and signed by the University College Registrar.
Below is the copy of the letter or disclaimer in words;
NO REPORTED CASE OF COVID-19 AT WISCONSIN INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY COLLEGE
Contrary to news making rounds of a “looming outbreak” of COVID-19 at Wisconsin International
University College, Management of the University wishes to bring to the attention of all that there has
been no reported case of COVID-19 at any of the Wisconsin International University College campuses in
either Accra or Kumasi since the outbreak of the disease early last year.
This has been as a result of the University’s strict adherence to the all laid down safety precautions and
protocols as outlined by the Ghana Health Service and World Health Organization. Management wishes to
assure members of the public that adequate measures have been put in place to curtail any possible
outbreak of the disease on our campuses:
HANDWASHING, SANITIZER USE
As part of the measures to ensure strict adherence to all safety protocols the university ensured that hand
washing facilities including Veronica buckets have been placed at vantage points on our campuses.
Sanitizers, soap, tissue and other detergents have not been in short supply as authorities want to ensure
that both staff and students regularly wash and sanitize their hands.
The university as part of the measures in ensuring the wearing of face mask has distributed face masks to
all staff members and requested unit head to ensure all staff members wear them at all times.
COVID 19 MONITORING TEAM & AMBASSADORS
As part of steps to prevent an outbreak of the COVID 19, Management of the university has also set up a
COVID 19 Monitoring Team and Ambassadors made up of both staff and students at all units/levels to
offer rapid response to COVID-19 issues while ensuring strict adherence to all safety protocols at all times
at the various levels/units.
Meanwhile, Management of the university is investigating the source of a false DAILY MAIL report of a
“looming outbreak” which it describes as mischievous and misleading and will update the public in due course.
