Students from the University of Mines and Technology are claiming that the university is using questionnaires to test for Coronavirus.
A photo shared by one student of the university indicated that she had been given a COVID-19 clearance form after filling out the questionnaire.
Some of the questions on the said questionnaire were as follows: “Do you have a headache? Sore throat? General body weakness? Fever? Are you: Coughing? Sneezing? Have you come into contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19?
Isn’t it lovely? Testing students and staff for the virus with a questionnaire (no, I didn’t even pinky promise not to lie).
Look at my test results guys!
I’ve been cleared of the COVID-19

The questionnaire also asked about the travel history of students.
Based on the answers provided, a COVID-19 clearance form may then be issued.
This comes as some final year students have been allowed to return to campus to complete their final semester.
