Is there a realistic action plan? What will school do…

first_imgThe first school week of this year in Latvian schools is almost over and both parents and children have probably made conclusions about how the new order of things works.With their experience, impressions and reflections on behavioral and other regulations, people in educational institutions generously share on social networks, but so far there has been no discussion about the school management plan in case a child is found to have respiratory symptoms. .The guidelines in such cases have been published by the MES on its website. We offer them in a transparent format, below. 2020 Knowledge Day in Riga +118 See more What to do if a student has signs of respiratory disease?The recommended action for pre-school educational institutions, as well as general and vocational education institutions, if a case of infection is suspected or detected in the institution, is as follows:If an employee of the institution develops signs of acute respiratory infectious disease (fever, cough, shortness of breath) while performing work duties, the employee is obliged to stop performing work duties and go home, inform the person in charge of the institution by phone and contact a family doctor to arrange further treatment. mode.If contact with other people in the institution or on public transport is possible, the employee must wear a face mask or mouth and nose mask.In this case, the school employee can return to work only on the doctor’s instructions, with the doctor concluding an incapacity for work sheet.If a pupil develops signs of an acute respiratory infection (fever, cough, shortness of breath) while in an institution, the institution has:The pupil should be isolated in a separate room and, if necessary according to the pupil’s age, the same adult who had previously been in contact with him / her should be present to avoid the risk of infection, the pupil should wear a face mask or nose and mouth mask and a medical face mask. mask.The recommendations then include contacting the learner’s parents or legal representatives, who should arrive immediately after the learner. Parents should contact their GP by telephone.The guidelines published by the Ministry of Education and Science state that such a student will be treated “according to the state of health” and “will return to the institution according to the instructions of the attending physician”.If an employee or student is diagnosed with a serious illness in a particular institution, the Emergency Medical Service (EMS) is called. Demonstrations are taking place in Berlin against the restrictions imposed by Covid-19 +15 See more If symptoms are found in two or more peopleIf signs of an acute respiratory infection are detected in two or more learners and a group illness is suspected, the institution follows the institution’s infectious disease control procedures – isolates students by ensuring the presence of an adult, uses face masks and mouth / nose pads to warm up, communicates with , or legal representatives and provide information by telephone to the epidemiologist of the relevant regional division of the Center for Disease Prevention and Control (SPKC).The MES recommendations also state that if a learner or an employee of the institution is diagnosed with Covid-19 and the case is epidemiologically related to the particular institution, SPKC epidemiologists will determine specific anti-epidemic measures according to the specific situation and provide individual recommendations to the institution’s management, stakeholders, and decide on the need for quarantine for a particular class or establishment.In this case, the head of the institution will be obliged to follow the instructions of the SPC, according to the material published by the Ministry of Education and Science.The head of the institution will have to inform the founder of the institution about this fact and the instructions received by the SPKC, while the representative of the founder will have to inform the State Education Quality Service about the fact if the institution is quarantined.Similar recommendations have been developed for vocational sports education institutions, universities and colleges. You can get acquainted with them on the MES website.The ministry also informed about the readiness of schools for the new school year at a press conference on 31 August:Watch the live press conference for the new school year at the State Education Content Center, Ilga ŠuplinskaPosted by Ministry of Education and Science on Monday, 31 August 2020One case of Covid-19 will not mean the closure of the classIn a conversation with the media, the public relations specialist of the SPKC Edīte Tettere has already pointed out that in a situation when a child would be diagnosed with Covid-19, the further course of events may be different.“Each case is reviewed and evaluated by specialists, so it is impossible to say that the whole class and all students’ families will be isolated. If there is one patient in the class or 10 patients at once, then there are completely different action scenarios, and they cannot be unambiguously predicted. Of course, if there are a lot of patients, the class will most likely close. Parents need to understand that this is done to localize the outbreak as soon as possible. If it is necessary to do it and what class and school will have to be closed, then it will be neither the will of the state nor the SPKC, but a reasonable action, ”said the representative of the SPKC.Tettere pointed out that, in general, it is not possible to predict whether the class where the patient is will end up in quarantine or isolation – there is currently no common algorithm to be followed.“It all depends on the number of patients, the size of the school and the way the learning process is organized, who the child has been in contact with and when the symptoms of the disease have appeared. There are many factors to consider. If a school or classroom is closed, it will be carefully assessed, ”explained a representative of the SPKC.Related news The student fell ill with Covid-19.

The experience of the world and also of Latvia shows that the course of the disease is relatively easier in children than in adults. Of course, there are exceptions and it is not always possible to predict how the disease will develop in a particular child. It should also be taken into account that if a child has a congenital ailment, he may become more ill.The representative of the SPKC reminds that this disease is not so common among children and the risk of the children themselves not being so high.However, there is a risk for school staff that children could pass the infection on to adult educators and their families.Until now, the youngest patient with Covid-19 in Latvia was a 10-month-old child who was also placed in a hospital.Others are currently reading PHOTO: people go to the premiere of the ballet “Swan Lake” Lithuanian Minister explains the main differences why Latvia is doing so well with the fight against Covid-19 The bodies of five children are found in an apartment in Germanylast_img read more

Judge rules Ronaldinho must remain in Paraguayan jail

first_imgASUNCION, (Reuters) – Former Brazilian international Ronaldinho Gaucho was ordered to remain in jail in Paraguay yesterday after a judge ruled him a flight risk. The ex-Barcelona forward was arrested on Friday for attempting to enter Paraguay with a false passport two days earlier and spent Friday night in a police cell along with his brother and business manager Roberto Assis.The pair asked to be released into house arrest but that was rejected by the judge, who also dismissed Assis’s claims to have a heart problem because he showed no proof.Judge Clara Ruiz Diaz said their alleged offence was a “serious one against the interests of the Paraguayan state”. Because the pair posed a flight risk they must remain in custody, she added.Under Paraguayan law, officials now have six months to complete their investigation but Ronaldinho’s lawyers, who called the decision “incredible,” are expected to present an appeal in the coming days.“He (Ronaldinho) doesn’t understand what’s going on,” Tarek Tuma told reporters. Yesterday’s courtroom drama came after an astonishing four days that began on Wednesday when the duo attempted to enter Paraguay with doctored passports.They were detained but a prosecutor who believed they were tricked into taking the fake documents recommended they be released after receiving an alternative punishment such as paying a fine to charity.A judge, though, rejected that idea late on Friday and shortly afterwards the pair was arrested. A police official told local media the pair had been placed in a cell with one other inmate. They were given soap, cushions and repellent to protect against mosquitoes.Although workers at the facility took selfies with the famous detainee, officials said the Brazilians did not receive any preferential treatment.Paraguayan television showed the two men arriving in court in handcuffs at around noon local time yesterday. The brothers were invited to Paraguay by a local casino owner and had arrived on Wednesday to take part in a soccer clinic for children and a book launch.Although he last played professionally in 2015, Ronaldinho, who also represented Brazilian clubs Atletico Mineiro, Flamengo and Fluminense, is still hugely popular with global football fans for his skills and showmanship.The 39-year-old was named FIFA world player of the year in 2004 and 2005 and won the World Cup with Brazil in 2002 and the Champions League with Barcelona in 2006.last_img read more
