Universities in Kyushu Prepare to Deal with COVID-19

Amid looming fears of the new type of virus, COVID-19, universities, and colleges in Kyushu are considering how to administer entrance exams. Recently Saga University announced that it will exempt COVID-19 patients and those who are highly likely to suffer the illness from its entrance exam. Admissions of those applicants will be considered solely by their scores at the National Center Test for University Admissions. Kyushu University hasn’t released such an announcement so far, while it mentions the possibility of separating rooms in case some of the applicants who have been to China in the past two weeks have a high fever, cough or other related symptoms.
