Decision to return to school this year in São Paulo leaves until September 25



São Paulo – The definition of whether or not to return to school in the city of São Paulo in 2020 will be announced until September 25 by Mayor Bruno Covas (PSDB). Until then, the city will carry out a third phase of the serological survey with students, analyzing the situation of students from the state and private schools. Data from the second phase of the study were released on Thursday (26) and show that 69.5% of children who developed covid-19 were asymptomatic, which represents a great potential risk of coronavirus transmission, since there will be no way detect the manifestation of the disease in students.

“The second phase shows the correctness of the city’s decision not to authorize a return to school in São Paulo in September. In the coming days, between September 10 and 15, we should have the third phase of the survey carried out with children, covering not only students from the municipal network, but also from the state and private network in the city of São Paulo. And, as of the third phase, the city will decide whether or not we will return to school this year in the city ”, said Covas.

‘Local bubbles’ explain reduction of covid-19 in São Paulo, but situation is unstable

The number of public school students in which they were
found antibodies to covid-19 rose from 108,823 in the first phase to
123,624, in the second phase. The data indicates that 18.3% of students have
contaminated by the new coronavirus, indicating a higher prevalence of the disease
among children than among adults. The prevalence of these is in the home of
11%. This is one more piece of information that concerns you about a possible return to school in
São Paulo, because it shows that children are more contaminated than adults.

São Paulo capital has been without health surveillance service for 11 days

The second phase of the study tested six thousand more children and adolescents aged 4 to 14 who study at the municipal school system. The data show that the population of classes D and E is the most affected by covid-19. And black and brown children are more contaminated, with a rate of 20%, compared to 16% in white children.

Back to school in other cities

The government of Amazonas postponed indefinitely the return to elementary school classes in the city of Manaus. The decision was made after testing high school teachers, who returned on the 10th of this month, to show that in just 15 days 342 teachers were infected with the new coronavirus. The data resulted from tests applied to 1,064 education professionals in the city, which is equivalent to 32.2% of contamination. In all, the state public network has 30 thousand educators.

After a week of decline, the transmission rate of covid-19 in Brazil rises again

In the United States and South Korea, the result of back to school was equally worrying. Cases of covid-19 among children increased by 90% in the United States after returning from face-to-face classes, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Association of Children’s Hospitals in the United States. In Seoul, the capital of South Korea, classes were once again taught entirely online after the return of face-to-face classes and the consequent increase in new cases of covid-19 in the region.

Centrals promote act for emergency aid of R $ 600 in São Paulo




São Paulo – Union centrals will return to the streets next Tuesday (3), for an act in São Paulo, in front of the headquarters of the Central Bank, on Avenida Paulista. On the centrals’ agenda is the maintenance of emergency aid in the amount of R $ 600 and the exemption from payroll so that companies can react to the effects of the pandemic and keep jobs. The demonstration is scheduled for 11am.

The issue of R $ 600 emergency aid has been the subject of a campaign by the exchanges since September, when the government issued Provisional Measure (MP) 1,000. The benefit was extended until December, but the Planalto cut the amount in half, to R $ 300. The opposition in the Chamber and the centrals want the MP to enter the agenda, which has been obstructed for a month. This week, the President of the House, Rodrigo Maia (DEM-RJ), said he could include the topic on the agenda.

The maintenance of tax relief for 17 sectors of the economy was vetoed by Jair Bolsonaro. At first, it ends in December. But Congress is mobilizing to overturn the veto. The president of the Senate and Congress, Davi Alcolumbre (DEM-AP), scheduled for next Wednesday (4) a joint session to analyze presidential vetoes and bills.
