Information on the Corona virus

On February 17th, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs changed its recommendation regarding travel to China “The Ministry of Foreign Affairs advises against all trips to Hubei Province. Furthermore, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs advises against unnecessary trips to other parts of China, with the exception of Hong Kong and Macao. The advice is valid for the time being”. This new recommendation is not primarily due to the spread of the infection, but because there may be travel restrictions and that the health care resources in China are strained.

As a result of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs new recommendation, the University of Skövdes crisis group has held a dialogue with the Vice-Chancellor and the Vice-Chancellor's function and concluded that:

With consideration for our staff and students, the University has made the following statement: We do not carry out planned activities to and from China at the moment.

The University of Skövde follows the recommendations of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and advises all staff and students not to travel to China. The situation can quickly change, so please stay updated via:

The crisis group continues to meet regularly, monitor developments and make risk assessments regarding the Corona virus.

If you have been in China for the past month and have flu-like symptoms with breathing problems, contact the Health Information on telephone 1177.
