The college management reiterated that all the students who displayed symptoms of the infection have been subjected to tests, and medicines were dispensed to them. Also, they have announced ten days holiday.

After the nursing students went on agitation and media carried the news of MRSA infection, people had become worried as a section of the media confused MRSA with the deadly MERS.

Over 40 students had been infected and protested in the college premises after the management's decision to assign them hospital duty instead of allowing them to go home as per their request.

District health and family welfare officer, Dr Ramakrishna Rao, said that the need to subject these students to detailed tests and the desirability of holding counselling sessions to educate them about MRSA will be discussed and a decision would be taken.
