NEW DELHI: Lucknow University has incorporated COVID-19 in the syllabuses of two of its courses. A unit on COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, has been introduced in the MSc Biochemistry. A similar unit has been added also to the course run by Institute of Public Health.

The new unit in the biochemistry course will be taught in the first semester, which will include four aspects of COVID-19 – physiology, transmission, precautionary measures and ways to curb it. While the Institute of Public Health will teach the social and economic impact of the pandemic.

According to Times of India, LU Vice-Chancellor has introduced the courses using special powers granted to a VC. The decision to introduce the syllabus was taken to ensure students get all required information about the virus, reported Hindustan Times.

Meanwhile, LU has suspended all its classes and examination due to the ongoing lockdown. The teachers are taking online classes and several teachers have also uploaded the course material online which can be accessed by the students. The university is also conducting online career counselling and helping out those with mental health issues.
