The new school year begins on Monday in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, on Thursday it is time in Hamburg and the last week of the summer vacation is also starting in Berlin. However, it is unlikely that the students can return to normal. In the middle of the corona pandemic, probably just before a second wave of infections. On Friday, over 1,000 people in Germany contracted the virus, and the Robert Koch Institute is concerned.

The latest findings from the United States also confirm the assumption that children of all ages can become infected with the pathogen and play an “important role” in the transmission of Sars-CoV-2. The CDC investigated a coronavirus outbreak at a summer camp in southern Georgia – the results of the study released on Friday should fuel the debate about school openings again.

The organizers of the summer camp had taken several precautionary measures to prevent the virus from breaking out. However, the wearing of masks was not one of the participating children and adolescents, nor were interiors regularly ventilated.

During their stay of several days, there were numerous outdoor and indoor activities, including “vigorous singing and cheering,” according to the CDC study. The consequences are enormous.

Around 350 children and young people took part in the ten-day camp, and around 250 employees and volunteers worked on the camp. Of the approximately 600 people present, only 344 had the result of a corona test – 260 of them, or 76 percent, had been infected with the corona virus. This corresponds to almost half of the entire camp participants. The New York Times first reported on the study.

Corona outbreak: Camp only closed after five days

The camp took place in late June, but the CDC did not give the exact location. The statistics of new infections for the state of Georgia show a rapid increase from June 16. There were around 783 new cases that day, but on July 1 the number was already 2,764.

The corona outbreak was noticed at the camp because a teenager showed cold symptoms two days after the arrival of the guests, i.e. on June 23 (1560 new infections in Georgia). He was then sent home by the camp staff. The next day, other camp participants were also sent home.

When the affected teenager received a positive test result a few days later, the camp was closed on June 27 (2038 new infections in Georgia) – five days after it showed symptoms.
