Altogether 117 students and 15 teachers of a premier school in Shillong were on Monday quarantined while three more samples of suspected swine flu patients were sent for tests by Meghalaya health authorities.

Students of all the three sections of Class VII and 15 teachers of St Edmunds School were screened, prescribed medicines and isolated for 10 days, Director of Health Services K H Lakiang said.

The move was prompted after one of the students, Joshwa Lyngwa, tested positive on Sunday.

Five persons have tested positive for swine flu in Meghalaya in less than a week.
