Infected children at Vizela school


The Câmara de Vizela today admitted the “possibility of an outbreak” of covid-19 in the municipality, after having closed the leisure activities of a school where two positive cases were confirmed in an employee and a child.

On Wednesday, the council said it had closed the free time activities of Basic School 1 and Kindergarten in Torre Tagilde, which were being attended by 10 children, as a case of covid-19 was detected in an employee.

Today, to Lusa, the mayor informed that one of the children who attended the Basic School of Tagilde is also infected with covid-19, pending the results of tests carried out in the school community.

“Thus, and the possibility of an outbreak is posed, and despite the situation already being monitored by the health authorities, the city council appeals to the locals to stay at home, in order to prevent the transmission of the disease in our community” , asks the municipality in a statement.

In particular, it is appealed that the population does not go to S. Bento – a visit that “can be held any other day during the year” – or to Parque das Termas, “in particular on Sunday, to watch the program of RTP Aqui Portugal ”.

“Avoid the concentration of people. Watch the program at home on television, in yet another moment to promote and publicize Vizela ”, reads the communiqué of the municipality.

Portugal accounts for at least 1,646 deaths associated with covid-19 in 45,679 confirmed cases of infection, according to the latest bulletin from the Directorate-General for Health (DGS).

The covid-19 pandemic has already killed 555,000 people and infected more than 12.2 million people in 196 countries and territories, according to a report by the French agency AFP.
