Third educational center for Infant and Primary in the province in which a classroom is quarantined when just four school days have elapsed of the new school year. After the confirmed cases in Villanueva del Trabuco and the Gibraljaire school in the capital, this time the contagion has been detected in a 5th grade student of the El Morche public school, in Torrox.
This student went to class on Thursday and Friday, and at the weekend he began to have symptoms of coronavirus, so he did not attend the center on Monday or Tuesday. On this day, the positive in Covid-19 has been confirmed, so from this Wednesday his 25 classmates and the teachers who teach the group will remain in quarantine at their homes, waiting for the PCR tests to be carried out.
The Councilor for Education and Deputy Mayor of El Morche, Mari Ángeles Ruiz (PP), explained to SUR that "at all times" the protocol designed by the center has been followed, and that the risk of contagion "seems to have been low, because the student only went to class for two days and with a reduced schedule because it was the adaptation period «. "Now we have to wait for the trackers to do their work from the health center," he added.
