Kunsill Studenti Università (KSU) urged everyone not to speculate on the identity of the University student who was diagnosed with coronavirus.

In a press release, KSU wished the 19 year old woman a speedy recovery and said that they remain at her disposal.

The press release says, “We would also like to stress the importance of showing respect towards one another whilst staying calm through these unprecedented times. Public health authorities have confirmed that they are focusing their efforts on tracing any possible persons that might have been in direct contact with this student as a means of precaution. We urge everyone to refrain from speculation about the above-mentioned case or any other case amidst this crisis. Moreover, we urge everyone not to share any personal information related to these cases to protect everyone’s privacy, unless with the relevant authorities should the information possibly aid their work in tackling the spread of the virus.”

Furthermore, they appealed to all students to stay at home and refrain from gathering in large numbers.

The Council has set up a helpline, which is (+356) 79077990. Those who wish to report COVID-19 symptoms may call 111.
