About 25 children from the junior section of the Ideal Indian School received medical attention at a Paediatric Emergency Centre (PEC) of the Hamad Medical Corporation on Wednesday after they apparently complained of itching.
According to a statement from the PEC, children from one of the Indian schools were taken there to receive medical attention following complaints of irritation in the eyes and itching on their body.
The children remained at the emergency until 3.25pm and released thereafter as none of them required any further medical attention, it said. However, the PEC statement, provided to Gulf Times by the school, has not mentioned what caused the problem.
The school in a statement attributed the incident to some "unidentified" reasons. It said the institution sought medical help which was made available immediately. "After diagnosis, it was found that these were the symptoms of common allergic reactions. After a thorough check-up and treatment, the students were safely returned home," it said.
