The Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) has decided to set up a Covid-19 health centre for students and staff members who have been affected by the virus, an official said on Wednesday. This decision was made after more than 300 people on campus were tested positive for the virus.

Sudheer Pratap Singh, Dean of Students of the varsity, conducted an online briefing and said there have been no reported cases of Covid-19 in the last three days among students. To help those who have been affected by the pandemic, JNU has put up this new initiative.

"We have lost some colleagues to the virus. We have gained victory over the virus to a large extent. A woman student had reported being unwell on May 15 but she went to her home and we checked on her. She is doing fine," he said.

JNU vice-chancellor M Jagadesh Kumar said the Delhi government is supporting the initiative while Chintamani Mahapatra, Rector I of the varsity, said meetings are being held with the SDM. Officials said the centre will be for patients with mild symptoms.
