Petition for GHRCE Nagpur to take preventive action against novel COVID-19

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,500!

Many institutes in order to contain the spread of novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) has suspended the in-person class gathering. With the virus spreading its effect in Nagpur city, we want the college authorities to take the immediate action.

For example-

1.Delhi, Mumbai, Orissa and UP have shut down all colleges.

2. Institutes like KIIT, Bhubneshwar, IIT-Bombay, MIT-WPU, LPU, Thapar University and many more are practicing virtual classes 

3. ISM Dhanbad has waived off 75% attendance rule for this semester.

Even the Prime Minister has urged to avoid public gatherings and the government has suspended all visas except for few categories like diplomats etc.

But unfortunately, we the students of G.H. Raisoni of College of Engineering, Nagpur, are not confident of the measures taken by the institute to contain this pandemic. Everyday students interact with a lot of people from different parts of the city and then there comes our college canteen where students interact the most making it a more probable breeding spot. 

The Maharashtra government has asked to close all the schools and colleges till 31st March 2020 and unfortunately our college has shut the college only for 16th of March  and not till 31st March 2020. 

Some suggestion for the management-

1. Focus on providing sanitizer and mask to each student. Also ensure the staffs working in the college and hostel or college premises are sanitized before entry.

2. Education cannot be stopped, hence conduct classes online.

3.Ensure the institute has the equipment and skill to detect corona virus in a patient.

If any mishap happen to any student while staying in the college or its premises, the institute shall be solely responsible.
