At least 66 medical college students, fully vaccinated against coronavirus, have tested positive for COVID-19 in Karnataka's Dharwad, officials said.

The students of SDM College of Medical Sciences were found infected after 300 out of 400 students were made to undergo Covid tests following a college event.

The two hostels at the college have been sealed as a precautionary measure on the orders of the district health officer and deputy commissioner. Physical classes have been suspended at the moment, officials said.

The infected students, who were vaccinated with both the doses of Covid vaccine, have been quarantined, deputy commissioner of Dharwad Nitesh Patil said, adding that they will undergo treatment inside the hostel itself.
