First coronavirus case on a campus

UNSW has the first student confirmed with coronavirus

Yesterday UNSW management advised a student had returned from Wuhan on January 23 and was now in hospital. “The student did not attend any classes at the university and stayed on her own in campus accommodation with no close contact before she was admitted to hospital.”

On Friday universities around the country were advising their communities to stay away from Wuhan in China, but not on risks at home. This morning they will be preparing for them.
