Students planning to come back to the campus have been asked to stay away
The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Roorkee, where 90 students and staff had tested COVID-positive in the past few days, has not reported any fresh cases.
No students are being allowed on the campus from outside and those already on the campus have been advised to take COVID-19 precautions.
The campus had been declared a COVID-19 hotspot and the Haridwar district health department sealed five hostels — Coral, Kasturba, Sarojini, Govind Bhawan and Vigyan Kunj, declaring them containment zones.
“The institute has about 3,000 students, of which around 1,200 students live in these five hostels. At present, all students are being treated in hostels,” IIT Roorkee media-in-charge Sonika Srivastava stated on April 8.
Reports of all students at Sarojini Bhawan hostel have been received and all of them are COVID-negative, she said.
