Covid-19. What if my child has symptoms similar to those of the disease? We answer you

A runny nose, a slight cough, the first symptoms of Covid-19 are “little differentiable” those of other seasonal viruses, influenza or gastro, affecting children. So what if when you drop your children off at school, they show one of these symptoms?

A question that many parents ask themselves, to which the Ministry of Education answered in an information booklet for families, available on its website. “In case of symptoms or feeling of fever”, it is necessary, first of all, ” to take the temperature “ of the child.

According to the recommendations, it is only if the temperature is above 38 ° C that the child should be kept at home. In the event that the situation is not realized, is there a procedure for a student who presents signs of illness perceived by the teacher during the day? Here again, the department provides details. “The student is isolated with a mask under the supervision of an adult who also wears a mask. “

As a reminder, students under 11, therefore in primary and kindergarten, are not required to wear a mask. The school then takes care of contacting the parent. Parents are then “invited” to a visit to the doctor before considering any return to class.

Even if it affects children less, “We are not going to escape the cases of Covid in schools”, Professor Élise Launay, a doctor specializing in pediatric infectious diseases at the Nantes University Hospital, explained to us at the end of August. A confirmed prediction: since the start of the school year many classes have already been forced to close their doors.

Should we test the children afterwards?

Before 6 years old, it is not necessarily useful as explained Véronique Hentgen, pediatrician and infectious disease specialist at the Versailles hospital in France Info. “If we do ten nasopharyngeal tests [par prélèvement dans les fosses nasales], first, it will be unpleasant. Second, it will most often be negative because the child will have something else […] If the doctor diagnoses the certain cause of the fever, for example, tonsillitis, it is not necessary to take a Covid test. If he thinks it’s a standard virus, as much as the child stays at home without a Covid test. “

And for children over 6? “Any child over 6 years of age or symptomatic adolescent (cough, and / or fever, and / or digestive disorders) must have a screening test before returning to the community unless a diagnosis of another infectious disease is made with certainty (Scarlatina, angina with GAS, enterovirus, urinary tract infections) “, specifies the French Society of Pediatrics (SFP) in its recommendations.

For children actually positive for Covid-19, they must be excluded from class for 7 days, “Possibly longer if symptoms persist, specifies the SFP. A PCR control is not necessary for the return to the community, because the transmissibility is now shown to be maximum during the incubation phase, and low after 7 days. “

Caroline Désir urges teachers to take “breathing pauses”

Caroline Désir and Frédéric Daerden marked the start of the secondary school year by going to the Royal Athenaeum in Binche. The Ministers of Education and School Infrastructure had responded to the invitation of MP and PS group leader Laurent Devin.

The goal was to take the pulse on the ground and measure the interest of certain projects put in place. Like creation of a “connected study”.

Minister Désir was very interested, asking if this system, already in place before the Covid, was ready to be modulated from the students’ homes. It is indeed not excluded from having to switch back to code orange (moderate risk) or red (high risk) in the coming weeks.

Reflective learning

Another project that aroused the interest of the Minister: reflective learning. During the start of the school year, each secondary school student will be invited to take a “selfie” of the months he has just spent and to self-assess. This personal portrait will then be compared to that which his teachers make of him. And each party will be able to adapt their learning and teaching strategy more effectively. “This is the first time I’ve heard of it and there is no doubt that it will feed the debates that we will have in plenary session of Parliament”.

Currently, secondary school teachers are blocked from the organization of excursions, visits, language stays and other green classes. “When will we have the green light that will finally allow us to organize?”, asks a teacher. The minister suggested that this was not on the agenda at all. And that it would take from 15 days to a month to make a first assessment of the question with the experts. “This new school year brings 900,000 students and 100,000 teachers back into contact. We have to be careful ”.

As for the minister frédéric Daerden, he expressed his will, by carrying out a tour of Wallonia of school buildings, to assess their condition. Its desire is to invest massively in buildings in order to achieve energy savings over time, which will allow new resources to be injected into educational projects, with a view to sticking to the Pact of Excellence.

doing Charleroi-Brussels by train is more expensive than taking the plane through … Barcelona

Our colleagues from Nieuwsblad point out that making a train trip between Charleroi and Zaventem costs 17.10, via the SNCB, while taking the plane from Charleroi to Barcelona then from Barcelona to Zaventem costs … 10 euros.

For 48 hours, Ryanair has indeed slashed prices and offered trips across Europe for ridiculous amounts. In all, a million seats were available for 5 euros.

And with a little luck, you were able to buy a flight to Catalonia for 5 euros, then come back to Brussels for the same price. Not necessarily interesting, but more economical …

You have to get the flu shot this year according to Hechmi Louzir

You have to get the flu shot this year according to Hechmi Louzir

Hechmi Louzir, director of the Institut Pasteur Tunis, said the specifics of the virus during this second wave have not yet been determined. A commission is conducting a study in Tunisia to find out if the virus has mutated or if it has become less virulent?

Remember that in Tunisia, several cases carrying the virus are asymptotic (they do not represent any asymptote or external sign of the disease).

Hechmi insisted on the importance of being vaccinated against influenza because with the arrival of autumn influenza as well as diseases of respiratory infections. getting vaccinated will prevent complications, especially for seniors.

Getting vaccinated against the flu will make it easier for doctors to manage covid-19 patients, he stressed.

As for the coronavirus vaccine, countries have developed prototypes such as Russia and China. Some have even reached the 3rd stage of clinical trials.

Louzir said: “We are waiting to see if the results are conclusive to be able to use these vaccines”.

In Tunisia, a commission in partnership with international organizations is studying these different vaccines to know their effectiveness and repercussions, he explained.
This commission is made up of professors, specialist researchers and scientific authorities to try to position our country and its health situation.

Hechemi Louzir recalled that the H1N1, the Pasteur Institute and the National Observatory for New and Emerging Diseases have worked together and have managed to manage the crisis well.

Louzir concluded by saying that after 7 months we will have found the vaccine and identified the disease to better manage it in the meantime we must continue to follow protective measures to prevent the spread of the virus.

when to do a Covid test?

A co-worker has just tested positive for coronavirus and it is all his office neighbors who replay the film of the last few days spent in his presence. To break the chain of virus transmission, it is necessary very quickly to isolate, for 14 days, “contact cases”, in other words all those who are likely to have been infected.

The mask, a determining element in the search for contact cases

When does the worry about the announcement of a positive case turn into real suspicion? “To be considered as a contact case, you must have spent time with the person tested positive for Covid-19, more than 15 minutes, without having respected a sufficient distance and without having worn a mask” answers Jacques Battistoni, general practitioner.

Situations which are found most often in the family or friendly framework. More rarely at work, where barrier gestures are “easier” to respect and where the obligation to wear a mask further reduces, according to this doctor, the risk of contamination.

This is also a key element of the interviews conducted by the health insurance teams responsible for identifying contact cases. If both the positive person and the interviewee wore a mask – correctly positioned over the nose and over the mouth – then the investigation stops there. “Depending on the model, the masks protect between 40 and 80%, assures Martin Blachier, epidemiologist and public health specialist. The surgical mask, for example, filters between 65 and 70% of particles. “

Confined and unventilated places favor the transmission of the virus

In addition to this effective barrier, another data must be taken into account: the state of health of the person infected with Covid-19 at the time of contact. “The potential for contamination depends on the viral load, Martin Blachier analysis. This is much less in an asymptomatic person compared to someone who coughs or has a runny nose ”.

The ventilation of the place is also a determining element. “We know that the risk of contamination is much greater in enclosed spaces. To be able to ventilate confined spaces 6 times per hour to ensure sufficient air renewal. It’s the same principle as in an operating theater ” explains Martin Blachier.

Once all these parameters have been examined, PCR tests usually confirm or refute the suspicion of contagion. Today “Out of the 900,000 PCR tests carried out, almost two thirds are carried out on people who fear to have been infected and only 4% are positive” details the epidemiologist.

These people have not necessarily been formally identified as contact cases. Many also want to be tested as a precaution, for a trip or a wedding. “These complacency tests are a real problem, denounces Jean-Paul Ortiz, doctor and president of the Confederation of French medical unions, the CSMF. Because in order to be able to identify contact cases, it is necessary to be able to test them and have the results quickly. Today, the goal of isolating contact cases within 48 hours is far from being achieved, but the longer we wait, the more the virus is likely to spread. “

Tens of thousands of Walloon families will receive a pass of 80 euros for tourism in Wallonia

According to L’Avenir and La Libre Belgique, this pass will be accessible using a QR code on the visitwallonia.be site and will give a purchasing power of 80 euros to anyone who uses it. The measure aims to reduce losses in the sector linked to the coronavirus, by encouraging the public to frequent tourist attractions after the summer season.

“The idea is to encourage people to continue visiting Wallonia outside of the summer. Be careful, the goal is to spend this voucher right away and not to hoard it. We still have to define the terms and identify the operators participating in this project, ”specifies Valérie De Bue in La Libre.

“The budgetary adjustment obtained by the Minister amounts to a total of 12 million euros, of which 6.5 million are still devoted to the” sustainable “improvement of certain tourist sites and 500,0000 euros to digitalization efforts”, completes The future.
