An international student living in Brisbane has become the seventh person to test positive for coronavirus in Queensland.
The 20-year-old man from China is in a stable condition in isolation in the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital.
Brisbane Times understands the student has not attended any university classes and his room-mate is undergoing testing.
The man had travelled to Dubai for at least two weeks before entering Australia via Brisbane on February 23.
To be clear, this example does not appear to be a university sponsored kiddie but he’s clearly not going to be the only one.
Somebody please tell me why some of the universities have been allowed to pay students to do this and put the entire Australian community at risk.
The chickens are coming home to roost, also at Domain:
Sydney University is introducing austerity measures to manage a $200 million budget shortfall due to the coronavirus.
The university will pause capital spending, expenditure on non-essential projects, recruitment, and unnecessary international travel. It will also review all existing and new contractor and consultant roles.
Vice-chancellor Michael Spence said the temporary savings measures would be effective immediately.
Just wait until they shut down.
