“In Tuscany over 100 infections among children under 12 years”

There are over 70 infections that have occurred in the school environment in the province of Arezzo in recent days. This is what emerges from the usual report of the South East Tuscany ASL. The data is updated as of today, 11 November.

In detail, 74 people are in home isolation. Of these 9 are teachers, 2 are non-teaching staff and 63 are students.

The overall number remains stable in Aretino, even if positive teachers have decreased and pupils who have contracted the virus have increased. There are 89 quarantined classes in all: among these, 16 are from high school, 28 from middle school, 38 from elementary school, 4 from kindergarten and 3 from nursery school.

The data of contagions at the regional level appears significant among children under 12 years of age. This was confirmed by the president of the regional council Antonio Mazzeo: “Reading today’s data – he said during the presentation conference of the Christmas City, more than 100 of the new positives are children under the age of 12. This means that the vaccination, where it was done, is working. And so I send a message, an appeal to Tuscan towns and citizens who have not yet been vaccinated: do it, because not getting vaccinated is an act of selfishness “.

Meanwhile, the South East Tuscany Local Health Authority reiterates its willingness to collaborate with educational institutions in application of the new regulations governing quarantines in schools.

“The protocols, issued last November 6 by the Ministry of Education and sent to schools, were implemented in such a way as to minimize the use of distance learning – explains the health company in a note –
Naturally, the ASL is always present and ready to respond to new scenarios that may arise. The new protocols, in fact, provide for specific new requirements for school managers, different measures depending on the age group of the pupils and the vaccination status and very stringent deadlines for the identification of cases and the consequent measures “.
