Vår Alieu Gasama, journaliststudent berättar om situationen på universitetet: We need to move to online learning.lack of access to technology or fast reliable internet access can prevent me, from disadvantaged family background.yet The Gambia has worse internet access and at a very highest average rate.The University of the Gambia have not got the capacity to teach online.
University provide essential learning and when it is closed I am deprived opportunity for growth and development.
Coming from disadvantaged family I am disproportionate fri under-prevelegde learners who tend to have fewer educated opportunities beyond school. University are hub of socially activity and human interaction when school is close I miss out social contact that is essential to learning. All of my free time I usually go to the  library to study  but it is now closed due to COVID -19.  COVID-19 pandemic also affected my research I’m doing on illegal dumping and the effect on our health and environmental.I suppose to summit it next month.

Gambia och coronapandemin

Det första fallet av Covid-19 i Gambia rapporterades tisdagen 17 mars . Gambias regering har infört resestriktioner  förbud mot stora sammankomster och stängt skolor och universitet. Konsekvenserna av en smittspridning i Gambia kan bli katastrofala. Vid sidan om oron för nära och kära och för landet som helhet oroar sig våra studenter förstås för sina studier. Medicine studerande Peace Nmorsi skriver:

I am affected because of this shut down due to the pandemic. I was supposed to write my third professional exams from 30th -8th of April but since UTG has closed its has to be rescheduled. Secondly,I was supposed to go for my US visa interview but they have postponed it till further notice. Thirdly,I was supposed to go immediately after my professional exams for electives and now due to this they postponed it. It’s devastating but God will continue to help us so this virus will go.
