A Geneva school has decided to close a primary class because of a proven case of the British variant, according to information from RTS. This unusual measure is explained by the high contagiousness of this new strain.

A Geneva school had to quarantine all students in a 5P class after one of them contracted the British variant of Covid-19. This will last until February 1, according to the email sent to parents on Sunday.

Such a measure is unusual. It is explained by the strong contagiousness of this new strain, which pushes the services of the cantonal doctor to take more stringent preventive measures.

Premiere in French-speaking Switzerland

“With these new variants, we have an attitude which is a little less expectant with regard to the management of cases. But our procedure adapts according to the evolution of scientific evidence, which we follow daily”, explained in the 7:30 pm Aliki Metsini, head of the communicable diseases sector of the service of the cantonal doctor of Geneva.

Since January 15, at least 6 schools in Switzerland have been confronted with the mutant version of the virus. This Geneva school is the first in French-speaking Switzerland where the case arises.
