KARACHI: The Ziauddin University restarted its educational activities after a six-month-long hiatus due to the novel coronavirus outbreak.
Management of the Ziauddin University ensured the proper implementation of health guidelines such as wearing masks and gloves, social distancing, and the use of sanitizers to keep the coronavirus at bay. Students have also been divided into groups to ensure social distancing and follow SOPs.
During the closure of the university, online classes and examinations were conducted successfully. The examination department played a vital role in organizing online examinations. Despite reopening the university, online classes are going on.
Prof Dr Pirzada Qasim Raza Siddiqui, Vice-Chancellor of the Ziauddin University, while appreciating the government’s steps to reopen educational institutes, said, “It was necessary to take this decision so that we could move the education system forward. We are following all the SOPs set by the authorities, but it is also the responsibility of parents and students to ensure compliance with the SOPs to avoid the spread of the coronavirus.”
