The coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a global emergency by the World Health Organization, as the outbreak continues to spread around the world. It comes as the number of UK people diagnosed with the virus reached 116, a rise of more than 30 in 24 hours. Meanwhile, the prime minister's official spokesman said it was "highly likely the virus is going to spread in a significant way". As a student of Imperial College Business School, I think it is time that students take the final exam online or change its schedule to the beginning of next semester to help reduce the risks of the virus spreading in the UK. It is understandable our program team insist to keep the daily operation, and our program team do care about student's opinion. However, we have a solid online system and we did lots of online tests last semester. Until proper precautions have been taken to ensure the wellbeing of the students, I sincerely hope that students can take the final exam online or change its schedule to the beginning of next semester.

The Hub provides a solid provision for students studying or taking the exam from home. The request from this petition is that the combined force of the Government and the NHS make the college aware that until a global solution is found to this new strain of coronavirus, where possible, they should remove the need for students to gather the assembly, such as class or exam. This is one way to take an advanced precaution to bring down the human-to-human spread of the coronavirus.

Please sign this petition to take this precautionary action. It is all about your health and your family's and nothing is more important than that, you would agree. So, kindly wake up and help bring this to the Imperial College London notice by signing this petition.

Thank you!
