Bengaluru/IBNS: Twelve students of a nursing college in Bengaluru have tested positive for COVID-19 even as 11 of them are fully vaccinated.

Nine of them are symptomatic.

All students who have tested positive are first-year BSc students.

One of them had not been vaccinated as she had tested positive of COVID-19 in June this year.

The outbreak happened at Spurthy College in Marasur. Another medical college in Karnataka's Dharwad was also declared a COVID-19 cluster after the number of students and staff infected with coronavirus went up to 182 from 66 a day before.

According to authorities, the medical college has been testing students and staff once every 15 days.

They will now test all primary contacts and remaining students.
