Update on CoronavirusWednesday, 04 March 2020
We are aware that there are some false messages circulating on social media that the Covid-19 coronavirus has been diagnosed in individuals at the University.
This ‘news’ is entirely false, including images of news coverage that appear to have been faked. There are currently no confirmed cases of Covid-19 among anyone at the University of Reading.
However, we are taking the threat of Covid-19 very seriously. A Major Incident Group has been set up to coordinate the University’s response. Its priorities are to protect the health of members of the University community and reduce disruption of University academic activities.
