Some 338 students – out of more than 330,000 students – and 47 teachers – out of 32,000 teachers – currently remain as active cases of coronavirus, which represents an increase of 34 young people and a fall of 8 teachers compared to last week’s data, as reported by the Ministry of Education in a press release.
In this sense, Infant, Primary, Secondary and Baccalaureate groups quarantined by COVID-19 have reached 0.3% this Friday, since of the 17,000 existing groups in public, subsidized and private educational centers, a total of 50 are in isolation –39 last week– when registering a positive for coronavirus among their teachers and / or students.
Likewise, since the beginning of the school year, the percentages of confined groups in the archipelago have ranged between 0.02% and 0.4%.

The first professionals to be vaccinated will be the teaching staff of Special and Infant Education and the rest of the workers in contact with the students of these teachings.
