With the return to face-to-face classes, we must take into account that, although the focus has been the prevention of COVID-19, there are many more diseases that can harm the health of girls and boys.
The concentration of viral particles is higher in closed spaces and they spread more easily, so it is important to know how certain diseases are transmitted. In some cases, such as chickenpox, it is spread by contact with the tiny droplets that an infected person expels when coughing / sneezing or simply speaking.
There are diseases, such as rotavirus, chickenpox or measles, that can be transmitted by being in the same room with an infected person, in the case of measles, the virus stays in that environment for up to two hours. Primary prevention is the best way to protect girls and boys against potentially serious diseases.
