The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is responsible for more fatalities than the SARS coronavirus, despite being in the initial stage of a global pandemic. The first suspected case in the Philippines was investigated on January 22, 2020, and 633 suspected cases were reported as of March 1. The clinical and epidemiological aspects of the first two confirmed COVID-19 cases in the Philippines, both admitted to the national infectious disease referral hospital in Manila. Because of the Said Pandemic- Covid 19, The Mindanao State University System (MSUS) Announced that the second semester of academic year 2019-2020 will be terminated effective immediately. In a memorandum addressed to campus chancellors and constituents, MSU President Dr Habib Macaayong said they shortened the semester because they gave "consideration of the preservation of life, safety and well-being" of the MSUS community. According to MSU Marawi's information office, the decision was approved unanimously by the Executive Committee and garnered majority consensus in the Board of Regents. Aside from the immediate end of the semester, the MSUS said that non-graduating students who have no failing grades or INC grades in the past semesters will be automatically promoted to the next year level. Students who have complied with their school requirements for the first 3 months of the semester will also get a grade of P. No failing grade will be given, except for students who have not been attending classes. These students will instead receive a “DRP (Dropped)” grade. Meanwhile, those who failed to submit school requirements during the said months will be given grades of INC. The memo added that grades obtained during the semester won’t be included in the computation of a student’s GPA or used as basis for giving of academic honors because of the “extraordinary nature of the second semester.” No Dean’s Lister will also be declared for the second semester.
