Argentina, the challenge of returning to the classrooms
Buenos Aires, Jul 31 (Prensa Latina) Several districts of Argentina with little circulation of the virus are getting ready to face a great challenge: to return to the classrooms in a very different way from that of a lifetime.
The restart of classes is almost within reach in some provinces, with strict protocols and in a staggered manner, in this new modality imposed by a pandemic that has hit the country hard, especially in the Buenos Aires Metropolitan Area, where there is a lot left for this, at least this year, since the cases of Covid-19 in the capital and the province of Buenos Aires, the one with the largest number of inhabitants, continue to increase, far from yielding.
The Minister of Education, Nicolas Trotta, pointed out in an interview with the newspaper 'Pagina 12' that 'with the levels of circulation of the virus that currently exist in the metropolitan area, a return to the classrooms cannot be projected.'
The picture is uncertain for the AMBA, as the Metropolitan Area is called, but not in other provinces, which are preparing to resume the school year in August after the winter holidays, at least only in places already in phase five of the quarantine.
'Some provinces do not reach 100 cases and they are only now taking these first steps back. At AMBA we are having four thousand cases per day, so it is difficult to think of a return', the minister explained.
For now, the provinces of San Juan, San Luis, Catamarca and Santiago del Estero are preparing for the return to classes, each with its specific protocols.
