According to college sources, one hundred eighty-six students, 50 teaching and staff members tested positive for Covid-19. The number of Covid-19 instances on campus has continued to rise since the first case was reported on January 6. Thirteen people tested positive for Covid-19 on Tuesday. Only 72 of the 186 pupils are in isolation in isolation rooms, while the rest have recovered. While 100 of the rehabilitated pupils remained in the camps, 14 returned home.
The employees and professors who tested positive were segregated residences since over 100 academics, and staff members live in the quarters with their families. The institute has started delivering all required items to the isolation rooms and staff quarters which is isolated.
Following the surge of Covid-19 instances, the institution has decided to exclusively handle cases online until January 30. While around 700 students returned home once the institute announced that online cases would be conducted, there were still 1,300 pupils on campus. According to a statement made earlier by the administration, they had prepared 211 isolation rooms, but only 72 were now occupied. The management, on the other hand, stated that if the circumstances required it, they would be happy to increase the isolation rooms. The samples of the symptoms were collected for fast antigen testing and RT-PCR assays at Government Hospital Sangareddy and Primary Health Centre. Meanwhile, management claimed that they had 6 certified physicians on staff and 9 nurses on call. Four staff nurses have been hired to give round-the-clock care to positive patients. The administration has also maintained two ambulances on standby, one of which is an ICU on wheels. However, sources indicated that when offline cases were done, many academics, employees, research researchers, and students living outside the school tested positive for Covid-19 after coming into touch with campus pupils.
