Ukrainian infectious disease specialist Svitlana Kunitsyna in an interview with the publication TSN noted that, most likely, schools and kindergartens will be closed for quarantine in November.
The doctor assures that despite the fact that children have a mild form of COVID-19, they can still carry the infection, which can lead to mass infections and the closure of educational institutions.
The infectious disease specialist is convinced that the beginning of the school year and the full-time form of education are a serious easing of quarantine, and this, of course, will contribute to the spread of the viral disease.
According to her, Ukrainian schools can switch to distance learning in November. And all because the coronavirus pandemic will overlap with seasonal influenza and ARI.
“Now we see schools and kindergartens closing. It seemed to me that a month or two would pass and schools would close completely. In addition, it coincides with seasonal diseases. The epidemic risk is very high that by November schools and kindergartens will switch to remote training “, – the infectious disease specialist summed up.
