Delhi Public School, Indirapuram, have closed down their primary section for a week after two of their students tested positive for the swine flu virus.

“Two primary students from Mayur Vihar and Preet Vihar reported they were infected with the virus. Both are fine and responding well to the treatment,” said principal Meeta Rai, adding the primary section will stay closed till September 28.
