The “Wall Street Journal” newspaper said that the “Delta” mutator had caused confusion in the plans to return to schools in the United States, as more than 1,000 schools were closed in 31 states due to Corona.
And she stated that in Mississippi, about 14,000 students have been infected with Corona, since most schools opened in early August, and about 20,000 students have been quarantined during the past three weeks, due to those infections, according to Russia Today.
Data in New Mexico shows that nearly 10 percent of the state’s 317,000 students have also been quarantined.
In Georgia, more than half of the virus outbreaks in the state, at the end of last August, were linked to schools.
The high number of injuries led to the closure of many schools in Texas, and the number of cases of infection among students statewide reached more than 27,000 cases, during the last week of August, an increase of 51 percent from the previous week.
Some school administrations are responding to outbreaks of the virus, with measures such as wearing masks, conducting frequent tests, and vaccinating employees, while some departments hope that a vaccine for children under 12 years will soon be available.
