Telangana: 43 medical students test Covid positive in Karimnagar

13 students tested positive on Saturday and another 26 on Sunday.

Hyderabad: Amid the Omicron variant scare, at least 43 medical students at the Chalmeda Anand Rao Institute of Medical Sciences in Bommakal, Telangana’s Karimnagar district have tested positive for COVID-19, prompting the campus’s closure and suspension of Sessions.

This comes a week after the college had held its annual day fest.

The institution had its annual day celebration over a week ago, and that might have been the root of the virus’s spread, according to an NDTV report. Dr Juveria, Karimnagar district’s district medical, health, and family welfare officer, claimed the administration had not been told about the plan to hold a physical gathering of so many people for the annual day celebration. During the event, many attendees were allegedly not wearing masks.

“A total of 200 attendees have been tested for Covid-19. “On Monday, a special camp will be held to test all 1,000 students on campus,” Dr Juveira added. According to reports, 13 students tested positive on Saturday and another 26 on Sunday. All students and staff have been tested, and a cleanliness drive has been conducted.
