AIZAWL: Three more persons have tested positive for COVID-19 in Mizoram, taking the tally to 4,349, an official said on Friday. The fresh cases were reported from Aizawl district.

Meanwhile, after a gap of about three months, schools across the state reopened their classrooms on Friday for students who would shortly be appearing for their board examination, the official said. Both the government and private schools along with hostels reopened for students of classes 10 and 12, amid strict adherence to COVID-19 guidelines, he said.

However, students have to undergo the rapid antigen test before entering hostels.

Online classes will continue for students of other classes, he said.

Schools in Mizoram had reopened on October 16 last year for students of classes 10 and 12 but were again closed due to a rise in COVID-19 cases. Some students had tested positive for the infection after the reopening of schools.

However, altogether 3,657 healthcare workers have received the shots of COVID-19 vaccine during the ongoing inoculation drive, state immunisation officer Dr Lalzawmi said.

The number of active cases now stands at 58 in Mizoram, while 4,282 people have recovered from the disease. The COVID-19 death toll in the state remained at nine, the official said. Till date, Mizoram has tested 1,99,000 samples for COVID-19, including 1,325 on Thursday.
