Half of the students detected with COVID-19 in the country are from Cluj, Arad and Bucharest counties, said on Thursday evening, the Minister of Education, Sorin Cîmpeanu.
According to the Ministry of Education, between February 8-11, after the reopening of the schools, 244 students and 329 employees from the system were confirmed with COVID-19 and the activity in 171 classes was suspended.
“So far there are eight counties without any confirmed case in students, there are another 10 counties without any confirmed case in employees, teachers, as there are counties Cluj, Arad and Bucharest, where a total of 122 infected children, at the level today (Thursday-no.), at 18.00, ie exactly half of the number of those found positive in the whole country. I think that makes us draw some conclusions regarding the observance of the rules “, said Cîmpeanu, at Digi24
According to him, 64 of the cases are in Bucharest.
Asked why he thinks that there have been more cases in Bucharest than elsewhere, the Minister of Education said that one explanation could be “the increased mobility of students in Bucharest, compared to other areas. An epidemiological analysis should be made, together with a sociological one “.
Also asked if there are data on the number of infections with the strain in the UK, the Minister of Education said that they are not available.
“These cases were confirmed on the basis of tests, done to a small extent in school offices, tests performed through health authorities, plus tests performed at the request of parents. There are many responsible parents, who when they noticed symptoms asked to test their own children “, Sorin Cîmpeanu also said.
He specified that in the schools where there are medical offices, rapid tests are performed.
