As many as 23 school children from four different schools in Noida have tested positive for coronavirus in the last three days, a report said. Noida has reported 54 infections of Covid 19 in the last 48 hours with most of the cases registered from schools.

Chief Medical Officer of Gautam Buddha Nagar, Dr Sunil Kumar Sharma, said there is nothing to panic and the authorities are doing contact tracing by visiting the homes of these children.

Meanwhile, schools in Noida and Ghaziabad have suspended physical classes briefly due to rise in Covid-19 cases. Yesterday, as many as 13 students, including two teachers tested positive at a private school in Sector 40 following which the institution switched to online classes for two days.

Two schools in Ghaziabad have also rolled back to online classes following detection of cases.

A Vaishali-based private school stopped classes after three students were found to be Covid-positive in the last 24 hours. Another Ghaziabad private school closed on Saturday after a 13-year-old boy tested positive. According to officials, the boy had not received any vaccine dose.
