Bengaluru: After attending a freshers’ party organised inside the campus of SDM College of Medical Sciences in Dharwad, nearly 182 people, including medical students and staff have tested positive for coronavirus.

If reports are to be believed, most of the infected people were fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and were showing no symptoms of Covid-19.

Reports claimed that nearly 200 students had attended the party which was organized a few days ago. “The students were fully vaccinated… We will be sending a few samples for genome sequencing to check if there’s a new variant”.
