Bengaluru/IBNS: A medical college in Karnataka's Dharwad has become a COVID-19 hotspot with 77 more testing positive, which took the total number of cases to 281 there.

The SDM College of Medical Sciences, a tertiary care centre, is considered as the medical hub of north Karnataka.

Following the outbreak in cases, the facility has been shut.

Fresh admissions to the hospital have been suspended while the entry and exit to the hospital has been blocked.

Among the ones admitted to the hospital, only those patients who test negative will be discharged.

Most of the people infected at the college were fully vaccinated against coronavirus, reports said.

Officials added that a recent freshers' party organised inside the campus led to the outbreak.
