MOSCOW, October 27. / TASS /. There are currently no epidemiological grounds for separating preschool children, Anna Popova, head of Rospotrebnadzor, said on Tuesday in an interview with the Russia-24 TV channel.
"To date, the issue (of transferring preschool children to a remote mode - TASS note) is not being considered," she said in response to a relevant question. "There are no epidemiological grounds for separating the young children you are talking about today."
Previously, director of the Rospotrebnadzor Research Institute of Epidemiology and Microbiology named after V. I. Pasteur Areg Totolyan said that fears that children are more active than adults in spreading coronavirus have not been confirmed. On the contrary, he says, children are usually infected by adults.
There are currently no problems in organizing the educational process in Russia in the context of a pandemic, Popova added.
“Today we do not see any problems in the educational process and the state of health of children,” she said.
Popova added that the incidence rate among schoolchildren is the lowest. She also noted that the measures taken in schools to prevent coronavirus really work.
