Given and considering that there is a strong increase in infected people among the under 12 (who are not yet vaccinated because there is no vaccine yet), we considered it prudent, with a choice shared with the Regions, to return to the initial forecast, with Dad in case of a positive in class. It is a measure that takes into account the current situation. “This is what the Undersecretary of Health Andrea Costa said when speaking on Radio Anch’Io, on Radio 1.
