UP students isolate after testing positive with the coronavirus

More than 100 students at the University of Pretoria are in isolation after they had tested positive with the coronavirus over the past three weeks. The institution’s spokesperson Rikus Delport says management suspected the virus was contracted off-campus at one of the pubs or restaurants students frequented in the Hatfield area. Last week, Higher Education Minister Blade Nzimande raised concern over reports that infections were rising at the country’s tertiary institutions.
