An anonymous source told Kaaro Karungi that the university is however keeping the information as confidential.

“Yes, she is dead although they (the university) have seized the info to be out” a source confirmed to Kaaro Karungi.

The source alleges that the university has recorded some cases of corona virus but deliberately hidden the information from the public domains.

Another credible source whose sister is a student at this university disclosed that his sister contracted the virus in the university hostel where she has been residing.
