Stark warning to parents as schools prepare to reopen – NPHET says 100 Irish children have contracted covid in the past fortnight




Professor Philip Nolan, the chair of the NPHET Epidemiological Modeling Advisory Group said that 100 children between the ages of five and 14 have tested positive for Covid-19 in the past two weeks in Ireland.

According to RTE, Professor Nolan said this was “in the context of household outbreaks”.

Speaking on the RTÉ programme ‘This Week’, Nolan said that there would be Covid-19 clusters in schools, but those cases are more than likely going to be contracted at home rather than in the actual school environment.
