The health authorities have not seen any spike in Covid-19 infection caused by transmission within schools, a senior health official has said.
"We continue to monitor the risk of infection within schools and it is pleasing that with schools strictly enforcing the preventive measures, we are not seeing any spikes in infection caused by transmission within schools," Dr Abdullatif al-Khal, chair of the National Health Strategic Group on Covid-19 and head of Infectious Diseases at Hamad Medical Corporation, told a press conference organised by the Ministry of Public Health Wednesday.
"However, with government schools beginning their post-exam break, it is important that parents and children continue to follow the preventive measures throughout the break to prevent a rise in infections among children before returning to school classrooms in a few weeks," he added.
