The university, which has almost 40,000 students will hold the stakeholders meeting ahead of the official re-opening date of Wednesday, August 13, 2014.
President of the University of Ghana Students Representative Council (SRC), Joshua Dogbe told Citi News, the meeting is imperative since the student population is made up of international students, some of whom are from the affected countries in the sub-region.
The meeting is expected to end with developed measures to protect the university community.
Dogbe stated that school authorities are worried saying, “we all know the mode of transmission of this particular virus, so it’s proper that at least, the university sits down to take internal measures to ensure that if anything at all, we will be safe.”
Four West African countries; Liberia, Nigeria, Sierra Leon and Guinea have been affected by the Ebola virus which has killed over 900 citizens.
The affected countries are closing their borders, some have closed down schools and barred public gatherings, all aimed at containing the disease.
The Health Ministry in Ghana has given indications it is working with all health institutions and security agencies to protect Ghanaians from getting infected.
The government is convening a high-level meeting to access the current measures that have been put in place and also to re-strategize following reported cases of patients showing Ebola-like symptoms.
