In the email address to students, faculty, and staff, the 2 students tested positive for the new coronavirus in the past 2 days. Both are unrelated and are receiving treatment at the National Centre for Infectious Diseases (NCID) and the National University Hospital (NUH).


The pair have reportedly not been on campus since the middle of Feb this year.

They did not state which cases they are.

However, they are likely either Case 229, 240, or 253 – announced on 16 and 17 Mar – given their age and recent travel histories to Spain.

Folks from NTU are in touch with the pair who are in “good spirits” despite contracting the virus.

Hope they recovery swiftly

We wish the 2 students the speediest of recovery and hope they’ll be discharged soon.
