NAINITAL: As many as 85 students of Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya in Nainital‘s Gangarkote tested positive for Covid-19 on Saturday.
Deputy collector Rahul Sah said initially, 11 students tested positive, along with the school staff. “Following this, Uttarakhand health department set up a testing camp and took 496 samples, out of which 85 children were found to be Covid-19 positive.”
“After the coronavirus cases came to light, the school was transformed into a micro-containment zone on the instructions of the deputy collector,” said an official.
Apart from this, children are being isolated in the school itself and necessary arrangements are being made for them. The children who came negative in the RT-PCR test will undergo a rapid antigen test, after which they will be discharged.
Meanwhile, Uttarakhand on Saturday reported four new Omicron cases, taking the total tally to eight, as per the central government data.
