Nagpur: Both the medical colleges in the city have stopped theory and practical classes and switched to online teaching for an indefinite period after several undergraduate and postgraduate students tested positive within a week of resuming physical teaching.
The move was taken much before the district and city administrations ordered educational institutions to shut down till March 7.
At GMCH, 64 comprising 14 dental students, 17 MBBS, nine resident doctors, one faculty member, 14 nursing staff, and 9 Class III and IV employees have tested positive since February 8.
At IGGMCH, 17 students have tested positive. These comprise a junior resident-I (JR), a JR-II, 10 first year MBBS students, three second-year MBBS and two final MBBS students.
All the 17 are admitted in Ward 42 of the IGGMCH. “Over 200 close contacts of these students were tested and found negative. But a separate wing has been allotted for all the suspects to isolate them from other students. They have also been asked not to venture out for sometime,” officials said.
Half of the 64 from GMCH students too are admitted in paying ward while others are in hostel.
“We have asked them to limit their visit outside campus while close contacts need to be in isolation,” GMCH official said.
Officials from both the medical colleges said beside rising cases in the city, entry of students from other states and cities has been one of the causes.
None of the medical staff from both the colleges has so far tested positive this month. Over 150 doctors and 180 nurses are working in its Covid hospital and 280 doctors and 450 nurses in regular duties at GMCH.
However, many of these healthcare workers had tested positive during the first Covid peak in Aug-September last year.
