COVID has confirmed two students who appeared for the state engineering entrance examination. The disease is from Pozhiyoor who wrote the exam at Thycaud center and from Karakulam who wrote in Karamana. The students who wrote the exam with a native of Pozhiyoor were monitored. The native of Karakulam had written the exam in a special room as he was suffering from various ailments.
Police have registered a case against 600 onlookers for failing to maintain social distance at the entrance exam center during the triple lockdown. Scenes of students and parents coming out of St. Mary’s Higher Secondary School in Pattom after the Keem entrance exam without keeping a social distance and standing together were viral. The government conducted the KEEM examination for engineering and pharmacy courses last Thursday, amid the spread of Kovid in the city and coastal areas of Thiruvananthapuram. The exam at St. Mary’s Higher Secondary School in Pattom was controversial, although the exam was conducted in compliance with the COVID protocol to ensure safety.
The case has been registered against 300 people, each known to be seen at the medical college and museum police stations. The museum police have registered a case against those who did not maintain social distance in front of the Cottonhill School in Thiruvananthapuram.
