Five Thakurgaon students contract Covid-19

Within two weeks of reopening schools in the country, five students of classes IV and V have tested positive for Covid-19 at a primary school in Thakurgaon Sadar upazila.

This incident has prompted the authorities to suspend all IV and V grades classes at Bahadurpara Government Primary School with effect from Thursday.

Headteacher of the school, Farhana Parvin said that samples of the five girl students -- two studying in class IV and three in class V -- were sent for the Covid-19 test on Monday. The results came a day later.

“All the five students have been staying at a government orphanage -- Thakurgaon Government Shishu Poribar (girls) --and of them, three are aged between 10 and 12 years,” said the principal.
