Other sources revealed that the second student who contracted the virus was a member at AISEC (a student-run organisation for leadership development, cross-cultural internships and global volunteer exchange experiences) and had recently attended an event with numerous other students.

Meanwhile, the institute’s administration has decided to disinfect both campuses to stop the spread of lethal infection.

Sources further revealed that the standard operation procedures (SPOs) provided by the government were not being followed in the IBA as many students and teachers were seen using the elevators of both campuses, without even wearing masks or following other SOPs.

The cafeteria and canteen have also been opened where a large number of students gather.

It is to be noted that sources also claimed that the institute will be conducting tests at both its girls’ and boys’ hotels and the campuses today [Thursday]. “Examinees will get their results via SMS within 24 hours of the tests. It will, however, take IBA 48 hours to 72 hours to know the results of all the students that were tested.”
