CHINA — A total of 22 students have been suspended from school to receive treatment after being diagnosed with tuberculosis at a university in Xuzhou, East China’s Jiangsu province, according to the university’s official Weibo account.
The students from the Panan Lake campus of Kewen College, affiliated with Jiangsu Normal University, were diagnosed with tuberculosis from August 2019 to this month.
Further examinations conducted after the students returned to school in September revealed that another 43 students were found to have abnormal chest CT images, who were therefore subject to further medical observation before the cases were ruled out, according to an official release from the university on social media.

All students have been hospitalized at Xuzhou Infectious Disease Hospital except for a few who were taken home by their parents to receive treatment at local hospitals.
Xuzhou health authorities claim things are handled in a timely manner in accordance with regulations and go on to say they are investigating how the disease was transmitted and how many students have been infected.
All educational institutions in China, under the rule of CCP, are infamous for a record of withholding information from the public, covering things up whenever possible and acknowledging part of the truth when forced to in a digital age. The outbreak this time is bound to raise questions yet again as to the real number of infections and potential cover-up to present a flawless image of the party.
