Six more students from Maktab Mahmud Sik tested positive for COVID-19, increasing the total number of positive cases at the college to 30 as of yesterday, all of which are classified as the Dah Pelangi Cluster.

Datuk Dr Mohd Hayati Othman, chairman of the Kedah Health and Local Government Committee, said the surge occurred after 44 students from the school took the COVID-19 screening test.

From the screening, 14 individuals were reported negative so far, one student was treated at the Kulim Quarantine and Low Risk Treatment Centre (PKRC) and has not been allowed to return, while another was treated at Sik Hospital but was allowed to leave last Friday," he said in a statement today.

Dr Mohd Hayati was cited in a media article last Friday as claiming that the Kedah State Health Department had identified an education cluster of COVID-19 involving 24 students from Maktab Mahmud, Taman Pelangi Jaya, Sik.

The cluster involved male dormitory students who were detected after some of them were found to be suffering from symptoms last Nov 28.

All individuals were in category one and put in quarantine in the dormitory; they were all reported to be stable, while all students who tested positive were completely vaccinated, apart from one student who did not gain his guardians' consent.

The school has been given a week off, while students who live in hostels must stay put and others allowed to be confined in their own residence," he said.
