CTU braces for COVID-19

Stakeholders gather at CTU Main’s Centennial Building to learn more about the pandemic, COVID-19.

Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID 19) has threatened millions more than ever as cure is yet to be found. Even the world’s most powerful country—USA–is left without a clue. Prevention seems the best option therefore before another life is taken away.

The Cebu City Medical Center (CCMC) team gave time to streamline the facts related to the world’s pandemic, safeguarding CTU from falling victim of such a global disease.

Prioritizing CTU in the campaign meant valuing the more than 18,000 students in the main campus alone, aiding much the government in the dissemination of relevant information.

Dr. Eduardo Camalongay Jr. led the group on February 27 in overcoming misinformation as he discussed on the virus’ transmission, symptoms, and preventive measures.

Divine Grace Cortes of the university’s College of Nursing reiterated the use of masks and proper washing of hands.

CCMC team clarified on certain queries from participants during the event, where CTU President Rosein Ancheta Jr. and other university officials also showed support.

The activity is not CTU’s first response related to COVID-19 prevention. Early in February, Dr. Ancheta advised for the cancellation of intercollegiate games in the region. ICPA/Darlene Moreno/Nation Builder
