In the first phase 6 staff tested positive but later the positivity rate has come down.
Later the students were also tested and 3 of 1142 tested were positive.
1142 students were tested from 13 colleges in the city and thankfully only 3 tested positive who are no undergoing treatment.
The swabs were taken in their colleges itself and a few at the PHC’s by the health department.
