Mysuru: Close on the heels of the Covid outbreak in the campus of SDM Medical College in Dharwad and International Boarding School in Bengaluru, 48 nursing students have tested positive for the contagion in Karnataka’s Mysuru district.

The district administration has confirmed the numbers stating that the infected students belong to two nursing colleges and contracted the virus in a week’s time.
