What is the role of children's play in the spread of the Coronavirus. New international studies will give more information and show a clear tendency.Can be transmitted children the new Coronavirus* Sars-CoV-2 or not? The answer to this question for a long time reigned in the science . A number of international studies are now showing a clear trend, which could also have an impact on Germany . Here you will find the basic facts to the Coronavirus * and the Corona-News from Germany. We also offer them in a map, the current case numbers in Germany*.
The closure of schools and kindergartens was one of the earlier measures that have been taken in USA , the spread of the novel Coronavirus Sars-CoV-curb 2. Already since everything revolved around the questions of whether and how well children in the Virus can be transferred.
Coronavirus: schools and day-care centres as foci of infection? Children are slingshots really "Viruses"?
Initial studies led to the conclusion that children proper " viruses fling " be, when it comes to the Transmission of Sars-CoV-2 . This was also one of the reasons that schools and nurseries were shut for now. However, the doubt on these findings, were getting bigger and new scientific studies reaffirm rather a different assessment of the situation.
the virologist Prof. Jonas Schmidt-Chanasit is, for example, ensure that children do not play a role in the dissemination of the new Coronavirus . "Under ten year old, the Virus does not spread. This has been shown by international studies,“ said the scientists of the image. Particularly, a study from Australia, which was investigating 15 schools with Corona-cases , which the children attended to continue the teaching, comes to this conclusion.+ The virologist Jonas Schmidt-Chanasit is certain: "Under ten years, the Virus does not spread."©dpa / Daniel Bockwoldt
Coronavirus: an expert is a sure - children under ten years of age to play in the dissemination of no role
to But scientists from the Netherlands, in a study of the knowledge, that children under ten years of age do not play a role in the spreading of Virus . The Transmission among children and from children to adults is rare.
The validity of these studies was very high so Schmidt-Chanasit: "this is the epidemiological observation studies from various countries, which all show a similar trend. Your power is stronger than laboratory studies , in which only the viral load was examined.“
The virologist* from the Bernhard-Nocht-Institute for tropical medicine in Hamburg, in view of these findings, no reason to keep schools closed. If it will ensure that the class rooms are well ventilated, and the class associations remain on the Playground separately, the school nothing more in the way of that. "Now is the right time to open the schools again," said Schmidt-Chanasit.
The Bild newspaper had the issue of school closures already repeatedly given to - among other things, a highly controversial article about a study of the virologist Christian Drosten.
