The state’s Director of Public Health, Dr. Abdurrahaman Dantsoho, told journalists the students who were admitted at the State Specialist Hospital on Tuesday have been treated and discharged.

He said the state’s Ministry of Health had tested water, and food samples collected from the school.

He, however, said no death has been reported at the college.

“The situation was brought under control due to the quick intervention of the state government. All the infected students have been isolated to curtail the spread of the disease,” the commissioner said.
