STUDENTS have begun to arrive at a walk-in coronavirus testing centre at Glasgow University. 

The centre, set up at Murano Student Village in Ruchill, aims to provide testing for hundreds of students who live in the halls. 

Glasgow Times:

The University of Glasgow confirmed two "significant" clusters of the virus in two different student accommodations after 124 positive cases of Covid-19 were linked with parties at the start of freshers’ week.

More than 600 people have been identified as being at risk after the clusters were identified at Cairncross Halls of Residence and Murano Street.

Earlier today, a spokesman for the University of Glasgow said: "We are aware of two significant clusters of positive cases of Covid-19 in our Murano Street and Cairncross residences, which we believe were largely due to social activity around September 12-14, the start of freshers’ week.

Glasgow Times:

"We are working closely with NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde’s public health team to manage these.

"The total number of reported cases since the start of term is 124 but the actual number is likely to be higher.

"Over 600 students are isolating across all residences.

"We are not aware of any students who have had to receive hospital treatment."
