NUJS closed for chicken pox after tiny small pox scare

NUJS Kolkata will be closed for the student body for 10 days, starting today, due to the outbreak of chicken pox on campus. Faculty and administrative staff will continue working.

NUJS vice chancellor Prof Ishwara Bhatt told Legally India that 13 students contracted chicken pox recently and noticing this outbreak the administration decided to “act for the health and safety of the students”.

An email was sent to students and faculty on campus today informing every one of the 10-day break, Bhatt said and added that the campus and hostels will be fumigated during the student body’s absence. He also said that classes will be “rescheduled”.

Legally India understands from sources that the first official notification on the disease-outbreak, sent to students, stated that “chicken pox/small pox” had spread on campus. However in a follow up email, reference to the disease eradicated in 1979 – small pox – was deleted.

Classes were rescheduled at Nalsar Hyderabad in January 2015 and at NLU Jodhpur in February 2015 due to the outbreak of swine flu on campus.
