Main contacts of infected SSLC pupil in Hassan test negative for publication coronavirus | Mangaluru News


Udupi: The reports of a pupil who seemed for SSLC examination on Saturday testing positive for the novel coronavirus at Padubidri in Udupi triggered panic among individuals who had shared the area with the pupil, and one of the officers of department of public schooling (DPI) at the district. However there was cause for cheer on Sunday later 18 pupils and the manager who’d shared the area with the infected pupil in Hassan on precisely the exact same day tested negative to the novel coronavirus.
Minister for secondary and primary schooling S Suresh Kumar told TOI that the pupil in Padubidri was analyzed for Covid-19 following her father was confirmed infected. “Considering that the reports verified that the pupil was favorable for the novel coronavirus, the examination center was sanitised, and it won’t function as a place for its science evaluation on Monday. The other students will be accommodated from the book room in the middle and all them will be given with N95 masks,” the ministry said.
Kumar reported they would have a call on substituting the invigilators, located in the area where the Covid-19 patient was seated in the Padubidri middle and subjecting pupils in the area to evaluations shortly. This follows a similar movement where DPI had made a decision to replace most of invigilators in an examination center in Pavagada taluk at Tumakuru district following an observer was verified infected.
The ministry sought to allay the anxieties of parents of these pupils who had been in the Mallipatna school in Hassan, saying that the institution was closed and sanitised. “The student in question has been changed to a book toom because the officials in the center learnt of the evaluation results when the examination was going to finish,” Kumar added.
Meanwhile, the department of health and family welfare has identified as many as 25 pupils with Covid-19, all people who were exempted from looking for the SSLC examination.
Kumar explained that the health division had falsified adherence to the normal operating procedure so far as security was concerned, which was being followed to the letter in the centers. “So, the other pupils in the test hall can’t be counted as connections. They could be allowed to write the rest of the exams, either in a different area, or we’ll permit them to take the supplemental examination,” the ministry stated.
