Students, teachers tested positive for coronavirus before classes started, claims AP Govt
The cases of infection will go up as most results are yet to come with 70,790 teachers and 95,763 students having undergone RT-PCR tests.

AMARAVATI (AP), Nov 9: As schools reopened in Andhra Pradesh last Monday after eight months of closure due to coronavirus, 829 teachers and 575 students of Classes 9 and 10 tested positive for coronavirus across 13 districts.

The figures will go up as most results were yet to come with 70,790 teachers and 95,763 students having undergone RT- PCR tests.

"The teachers and students were tested before the schools reopened on November 2. So it is wrong to assume that most of the cases spiked after schools resumed. I request parents and media not to believe fake messages being circulated on social media," said Commissioner of School Education V Chinna Veerabhadrudu.

According to statistics released by the State Government, 98.92% schools have started attending since November 2 with a cumulative strength of nearly 4 lakh students of classes 9 and 10. Out of the 1.11 lakh teachers, over 90,000 attended schools. Officials said the maximum number of cases were reported from Prakasam district where at least four schools turned out to be covid hotspots.

"Only those who test negative will be allowed to attend schools. All Covid-19 positive teachers and students were isolated immediately. Schools are being thoroughly sanitised and standard operating procedures are being strictly followed." said Andhra Pradesh Education Minister Adimulapu Suresh.

The Government said it will continue operating schools for classes 9 and 10 and Intermediate first and second year on alternate days only on half-a-day basis. Classes for 6-8 are set to resume on November 23 while those studying in 1 to 5 can start attending from December 14.
