4 more Doon students test positive for (A)H1N1

  Five students tested positive for H1N1 virus on Tuesday and four cases were detected on Wednesday.

A spokesperson of the school said there were no fresh cases on Thursday and the school continues to work closely with state health authorities. “We are monitoring the situation on the campus continuously and our doctor is keeping the authorities fully informed,” he said.

Denying media reports that the school has been shut, the spokesman said, “This is not the case. We still have boys, staff and employees on campus,” adding the school would resume lessons on September 22.

Headmaster Peter McLaughlin said: “The school is not shut but classes have been suspended. All are free to go home and if they wish they can stay in the campus.”
Meanwhile, in the wake of the outbreak of the virus in Doon, the Uttarakhand health department has advised all schools in the hill state like Welham, Sherwood and Woodstock to keep a close watch on the students.
