The Cotton University has postponed the ongoing semester I exams of all undergraduate courses after a professor of the university’s zoology department has tested positive for Covid-19.
The alarming rise in Covid-19 cases in Assam’s Kamrup (Metro) district is also another reason behind the university authorities’ decision to suspend examinations for now.
According to sources, the professor was invigilating an examination on April 24 in the university campus.
This has raised an alarm of possible infections among the students and staff of the Cotton University.
Exams of all undergraduate courses including BA Liberal Arts have been postponed from Monday, the order issued by the Cotton University stated.
The remaining exams will be held when the current situation improves and students will be notified accordingly.
A total of 1844 people tested positive for Covid-19 on Sunday, of which 791 are from the Kamrup (Metro) district.
The virus claimed 14 more lives on Sunday across Assam.
