The morbidity of children directly affects the health of their family members. They are one and a half times more likely to transmit the infection to relatives living with them than adults.
Statistics show that the transfer of schoolchildren in grades 6-11 to distance learning had a positive effect, said the Moscow Deputy Mayor for Social Development Anastasia Rakova.
The morbidity of children directly affects the health of their family members, said Anastasia Rakova. They are one and a half times more likely to transmit the infection to relatives living with them than adults. This means that remote control helps to reduce the spread of COVID-19, although this format may not be convenient for everyone, the Deputy Mayor said.
She added that most children, fortunately, easily carry the infection. However, there are also severe cases. For the entire time of the pandemic, children accounted for 10 percent of the number of cases, or about 45 thousand people. One tenth of them had to undergo treatment in hospitals. According to Anastasia Rakova, in general, these numbers are not very large, but they indicate that even children are seriously at risk of getting sick.
The deputy mayor clarified that today about 180 children are being treated in Moscow clinics, of which 11 are in intensive care.
About 500 thousand students in grades 6-11 were transferred to distance learning from October 19. This form of training will be valid until November 22… According to experts, it is children of senior school age who are more at risk of contracting coronavirus infection. In addition, high school students are better at information technology. Therefore, it was decided to send them to remote control.
Primary school students are now full-time students. They switch to online learning when one of the students in the class has contracted coronavirus. In this case, specialists conduct an epidemiological investigation and test the rest of the students for COVID-19.
