Corona has created a stir at IIT Hyderabad. At IIT Hyderabad in Kandi, Sangareddy district, 119 students and staff were diagnosed Corona positive. After symptoms in some students, suspected students and staff underwent tests and 119 people were found to be infected with the corona at the same time.


Forty-Five of them - 22 undergraduate students, 14 postgraduate students, seven research scholars, one regular staff member, and an outsourced plumber - tested positive on Tuesday and the remaining 74 tested positive over the past week. Some more reports are yet to arrive. Authorities were alerted.


Corona infected people are kept in special isolation wards on the top floor of the hostels in the IIT campus. The remaining students are upset about the college still functioning and the authorities keeping all their requests to leave the campus on hold. Doctors are attending to the infected students. Students are also blaming the institute for not starting the online classes.


"The authorities rejected every reasonable request from faculty and staff for online classes. There are classes of 190 students with many students not wearing masks. The director chose to listen to one Prof Vidyasagar who is an electrical engineer and has no background in virology or epidemiology," a student told Nearby News on anonymity.
