Queens University Belfast- Shut Down Lectures

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

To prevent spread of Coronavirus- suspend all lectures! 

With coronavirus (COVID-19) “The university is planning to be "operating as normal." 

However, this disregard for risk is unsafe for multiple reasons. QUB’s campus is highly populated - students go to class and eat together. If the Senior Officers do not take action, the virus has potential to jeopardise not only the health of our students and staff, but also our families and neighbors.

There has already been cases in QUB

Some schools in the UK have already sent pupils and staff home when cases of coronavirus were suspected. Universities without coronavirus cases in Italy have been closed. Universities such as Stanford University have been requesting school closure, even without a confirmed coronavirus case. Clearly, action needs to be taken right now before opportunities arise for greater danger.
