Posted on: March 26, 2020 | Back | Print

Dear students, 
The situation in Belarus is fairly stable and you should not panic. 
Closing the universities etc depends on government directives. University authorities cannot take unilateral decisions. As of now, take normal precautions and social distancing and stay away from classes of you wish to minimize exposure. You will all be quite okay. We at the Embassy are still working and just taking adequate precautions and have encountered no health issues so far. As you know, India is under total lockdown upto April 15, and no travel in or out is possible, so you can't think of heading back. In any case it's safer being here for the time being. So please relax, don't panic and just take all prescribed steps to stay safe. 
You are all doctors and should be able to handle the situation better than any of us. Doctors all around the world are fighting the disease and helping people. Remember that getting scared does not help. Latest studies are showing that COVID 19 is only a little more dangerous than cold and cough for young and healthy people like you. Take prescribed precautions and you should be fine. We will have a word with your university tomorrow.
We have spoken to the University concerned; they assured us that all necessary precautions are being taken to ensure your safety.
