The increased incidence is observed in the age group from 10 to 19 years
In France, where more than six people have been banned from gathering to fight the spread of the coronavirus, the epidemiological situation continues to deteriorate. The incidence of COVID-19 among children and adolescents has almost doubled in two weeks.
This was stated by the epidemiologist of the National Institute of Health and Medical Research of France Dominique Costagliola, who reports the LCI TV channel.
According to her, the increased incidence is observed in the age group from 10 to 19 years.
The reason for this is that many schools have employees who have been in contact with the sick or are ill and cannot go to work. There is no substitute for them, and we have to mix classes.
Recall, on March 16, French Prime Minister Jean Castex said that the third wave of coronavirus has begun in the country.
