The Most Productive Way To Spend A Compulsory Break✨

By Moyinoluwa Babalola It is much easier planning a break when you have an afore knowlege of its coming. You start sending in applications to organizations, companies and corporations on hiring you as intern or you start saving up or asking your parents for money to learn a new skill and most importantly your mind is even prepared for it.
Having a break where your mind is not even prepared for it can be really difficult as much as i hate to say it, that is what we are experiencing right now.
Should we be angry and just lazy around, sleep, surf the net, watch movies and eat all through. Atleast no one can blame us, we weren't prepared for it.

"All Samples collected from Ife are Negative for SARS-COVI 2 Virus" -Prof Onayade.

On the 25th of March, 2020, a Covid-19 case was confirmed in Osun State. This generated the rumour on social media about a confirmed case in OAUTHC.  This rumour appeared to be false as Prof Onayade from OAUTHC said, "Dear colleagues, I am glad to report that all samples collected from Ife are NEGATIVE for SARS-COVI 2 virus. All exposed persons should calm down. However, note that 80% of persons who are infected and able to transmit the infections are asymptomatic.

The protocol will be distributed to all service points tomorrow and we will continue to strengthen our preparedness and plans to keep you all safe. God bless us all."

Stay Safe

By Ayodele Jomiloju
Majority of us smiled at the new year prepared to set our visions right, loads of resolutions stuck in our hearts, lots of promises were made and we vowed not to recede, unfortunately or fortunately for us today it feels like the end of the world. It could had been any other time but it choose now and our preparation still matters as we can't afford to ignore precautions and run after the cure.
 People are dying and a choice to either learn or live under the shadow of rumours that have been created to make us feel safe. There are tens of invalid conclusions spreading day after day. Everytime I hear this rumor I tell myself we don't need it. All we need to do is guide ourselves, take the recognized precautions and try to stay safe.
