Mon, Apr 17, 2017, 11:28 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Apr 17, Colombo: The Vice Chancellor of the Peradeniya University Prof. Upul Dissanayake said the academic sessions of the university will resume on Tuesday 18th April.

The University was closed from the 4th of this month as a result of a viral fever spreading among students.

The Vice Chancellor said the students residing in the hostels should report to their respective hostels within the day today.

The University on the 3rd April informed the students to vacate the university premises until further notice due to the spread of a viral fever. According to the Vice Chancellor around 500 students had contracted the virus in the first week of April.

He said the decision to close the University was taken after discussing with all the relevant health authorities and on their recommendations. He added that the University’s Health Units were not able to control the rapid spread of the virus while students were on campus.

The Vice Chancellor said the situation is now under control.

The Faculty of Agriculture at the Ruhuna University, which was also closed temporarily due to a viral fever spreading among students, will also be opened on 18th April to resume academic sessions.
