Bengaluru, March 5 : A government school in the eastern suburb of Bengaluru has been shut for 14 days after seven of its students and two teachers of Class X tested positive for Covid-19, a top official said on Friday.
“The Narayanapura government high school at K.R. Puram has been closed for 14 days from Saturday as seven students and two teachers have tested positive for coronavirus,” Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagar Palike (BBMP) commissioner N. Manjunatha Prasad said in a statement.
Of the affected students, six have been shifted to the state-run hospital in the area, as their home isolation conditions were not satisfactory.
“All the affected students and teachers are asymptomatic and under quarantine for treatment,” said Prasad.
As per the protocols, civic ward No. 55 where the school is located has been declared as a cluster. “After the two teachers turned positive on February 27, about 132 students in the school were tested of which 125 results returned negative,” said Prasad.
