This brings the number of students and staff who have tested positive for the virus at the school to 59.
Abdullah said there were more students and staff who had undergone screening but have yet to get their medical results.
To prevent the coronavirus from spreading, he said, the students who do not live in the hostel and have yet to receive their medical results have been asked to remain in the school.
“We do not want them to spread the virus should their results come back positive,” he said in a statement.
In a separate statement, State health committee chairman S. Veerapan said 37 cases were reported in the state yesterday.
