De­spite these cas­es, he said the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion’s re­port notes: “No stu­dent out to phys­i­cal school, to the knowl­edge of the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion, has been hos­pi­talised.”

Two weeks ago, it was re­vealed that 55 cas­es were record­ed be­tween Oc­to­ber 4 and No­vem­ber 5. This means there are at least 99 cas­es com­ing out of the na­tion’s schools. The num­ber of cas­es could be high­er by the end of this week.
