STAFF WRITER (JUBA) The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Juba, Professor John Akec, issued an administrative order NO. 28/2020/A/28 for the formation of the University of Juba COVID-19 Pandemic Response Technical subcommittee.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) is an ongoing pandemic caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus. The outbreak was first identified in Wuhan, China, in December 2019.  It then spread to other regions of the world, and as of early March 2020, more cases of the disease have been reported in over 190 countries and territories, claiming a lot of lives and infecting many people.

This has called for worldwide sensitization and preparedness for countries where cases have not yet been reported.
