She said she does not agree with the fact that the two institutions are in the same spot.

Speaking to the press after a visit paid to UJES, the official expressed concerns about the current situation, since the faculty is currently functioning inside the hospital, which accommodates patients with infectious disease such as tuberculosis, putting at risk the lives of the students and administrative staff.

In this ambit, the minister assured that the government will pay a special attention to this issue in order to rapidly overcome problems such the lack of teachers, administrative staff and laboratories.

At least 15,703 students are enrolled for the current school term in UJES.
