Mass outbreak getting worse: Hundreds of schoolchildren infected with Corona on school trips

Palma de Mallorca –

More than 800 schoolchildren from several parts of Spain were infected with the corona virus on graduation trips to Mallorca in mid-June. According to the latest information from various regional governments, the number of teenagers infected increased by more than 200 on Sunday to at least 848.

  • Hundreds of students become infected with coronavirus on school trips
  • Schoolchildren were on graduation trips to Mallorca
  • Is corona progress in Spain at risk?

In Madrid alone, at least 410 young people are affected. Cases also reported the Basque Country (126), Valencia (104), Galicia (70), Catalonia (64), the Balearic Islands (33), Murcia (20), Castile-La Mancha (11) and Aragon (10).

Corona outbreak: Many students probably took the same ferry to Mallorca

It is believed that a large number of the young people affected took the same ferry from Valencia to Mallorca. Others probably came into contact with each other on the island. All students were infected with the alpha variant of the virus, which was first discovered in the UK, it said.

Hundreds of contacts have also been quarantined in the various regions. Health Minister Carolina Darias called on adolescents and young adults, most of whom have not yet been vaccinated because of the strict age prioritization in Spain, to “behave responsibly”.

The corona situation in Spain had recently improved continuously

The corona numbers in Spain have been falling almost continuously for months. For a few days, however, the number of nationwide infections per 100,000 inhabitants has stagnated between 40 and 50 within seven days.

In the course of the relatively relaxed corona situation, the government decided to significantly relax the strict mask requirement outdoors: Since Saturday, mouth and nose protection only has to be put on if the minimum distance of one and a half meters from people outside the household cannot be maintained.
