32 out of a total 7,61,506 students who sat for the Secondary School Leaving Certificate (SSLC) examinations in Karnataka tested positive for coronavirus, according to the government data released on Saturday.

The SSLC Examinations, conducted between June 25 and July 3 this year, were held amid a lot of opposition from both public and the students' parents.

However, the state government was appreciated for conducting hassle-free examinations.

According to the government data, 80 more students were being quarantined at home and primary contacts of the 32 students would also be tested and quarantined if necessary.

The report stated that 3,911 students, who lived in containment zones, did not attend the examination. Another 863 students did not appear for the exams because they were unwell.

The SSLC exams were initially expected to be led between March 27 and April 9. In any case, inferable from Covid-19 pandemic, the tests were delayed by the Karnataka government. 

Restriction pioneers and guardians raised their interests with respect to the kids showing up for the tests. The greater part of the resistance heads said that the administration was gambling lives of the understudies in the midst of Covid-19 pandemic. 

Be that as it may, the state government adhered to its choice of directing the tests and did so effectively. In the meantime, questions emerged about the spread of Covid-19 to different understudies who showed up for the test at similar focuses where the 32 understudies tried positive.

The state government remains confident that social distancing, thermal testing and sanitisation during the examinations would have a restricted spread of the virus.

On Friday, Karnataka education minister Suresh Kumar took to Twitter and congratulated the students for completing their SSLC examinations.
