Twenty-two students tested positive for Covid-19 in Hisar, Rohtak and Jhajjar districts of Haryana when they underwent the mandatory health check-up prior to the reopening of schools for Classes 10 and 12 on December 14, as said by officials.
Vinay Sethia, a health inspector at Barwala, said the matter came to light after school principal Gajanand Sharma requested the department to collect samples of students of the two classes at Kheri Barki village itself on December 12. “We collected the samples of 66 students. Of them, 18 tested positive. We have started sanitisation and infected students are in home isolation,” he said.
It has been found that two students each tested positive in Rohtak and Jhajjar districts.
Dadri deputy civil surgeon Dr Sanjay Gupta said: “We have collected the samples of 800 students and the report will be out by Thursday morning.”
