PATNA: A final-year MBBS student of Patna’s Nalanda Medical College and Hospital died of Covid-19 and eight others tested positive over the past three days, prompting the institute to suspend all classes from Wednesday until RT-PCR tests clear the remaining students and hostel inmates. All nine students had been administered their first vaccine dose around three weeks ago. Immunity kicks in only after the second dose.
Principal secretary of health Pratyaya Amrit visited the college and directed hospital superintendent Binod Kumar Singh to ensure that everyone on the campus was tested.
