Students and teachers from about 20 primary and secondary school classes have had to self-isolate at home again due to suspicions of COVID-19 after children and teenagers returned to school in small groups from the end of May.
“If we had seen the virus spreading in the schools, we would have reacted immediately”, Education Minister Claude Meisch told RTL, maintaining that students and teachers had been in contact with infected persons within their family circles.
In Luxembourg, there was a spike in the number of COVID-19 cases over the weekend as 46 people tested positive on Sunday (5 July), while 29 cases had been detected the day before.
Of the 224,953 tests carried since the start of the pandemic, a total of 4,522 people tested positive for the virus. (Anne Damiani | EURACTIV.com)
