“For now we have no particular warning signs from schools. We closely monitor the situation and the epidemiological evolution. It is clear that the school age population is paying attention ”.
This was stated by the Director General for Prevention of the Ministry of Health, Gianni Rezza, during the press conference on the analysis of data from the Covid Monitoring of the Control Room, responding to those who asked him for an initial assessment of the effect of the reopening of schools on the progress of the Sars-CoV-2 epidemic.
Even because “up to now it has not been possible to vaccinate under the age of 12. Fortunately children even when they become infected tend to overcome the infection quite brilliantly, they rarely develop severe forms of the disease. This relieves us, but we need to monitor the situation and assess whether the virus begins to circulate more quickly. For now there are no warning signs and we hope this continues“, conclude.
