ANTIGEN TESTING NOW PREFERRED BY SCHOOLS IN IRELAND
The rising number of children being kept out of school due to Covid-19 could be stemmed using antigen testing. The information came after it was made in a statement by the head of the Irish SME Association.
The HSE estimates there could be as many as 14,000 children out of school as they are a contact of a Covid-19 case. The majority are young children in primary or creche settings and so cannot be left home alone causing, what ISME described as,’massive burdens’ for working parents.
According to Neil O’Donnell, chief executive of ISME, Many businesses are still offering work from home as an option but under government plans, that are awaited to be changes later in month of september.
Currently as an aftermath, antigen testing is being used in some schools and university settings. It’s being lead by the ex-dean of University College Cork’s medical school, Professor Mary Horgan. For vaccinated students, there is an easy in guideline. Vaccinated students without symptoms do not have to restrict their movement in close contact areas.
The Department of Education has been issuing guidance on this issue, and has now released a list of 11 symptoms for children. This follows confusion among parents about symptoms of Covid-19, and the fact that children have been in school while infectious, even being returned to school immediately after doing a test instead of waiting on the results.
Accordign to us, if this rule comes into place, Testeaslab antigen rapid test would be the best, most easy option for the upcoming future generation of nation.
