New Delhi: Despite the IIT Hyderabad authorities allowing only fully vaccinated students to visit the campus, it has emerged as a Covid-19 cluster after 112 students of the institute found positive for coronavirus.  IIT Hyderabad official notice reads, “All of the students have been isolated into separate isolation areas.

Almost all the reported cases are either mild or asymptomatic and are showing good signs of recovery within 4-5 days. The food and medicines for all the covid affected students are being delivered directly by the attenders with necessary Covid protocols.”

“We currently have six well-qualified medical doctors and nine staff nurses serving the IITH community 24X7 on a rotation basis. We have recruited four additional staff nurses exclusively for monitoring the Covid cases. Two ambulances, including ICU on wheels are available 24X7 for all emergency situations including shifting of cases to higher centres,” said the institute.

The institute has claimed that it followed all the necessary steps to prevent Covid-19 spread and followed a seven day isolation period for infected students from the date of testing. After the reports came to light, all offline activities of the campus have been suspended and the classes have shifted to online mode. Nearly 600 affected students have vacated the campus.

Primary and secondary contacts of those testing positive are being quarantined for two days and are being advised to undergo testing if symptomatic, it said.
