While Italy is preparing to reopen schools by cutting the old-school benches in two, there is a new spike in coronavirus cases.
Italy was the largest epicenter of COVID-19 outside of China, during the first wave of infections.
After months of persistent battle and many deaths, the country is finally ready to reopen the schools, by implementing new single-desks and cutting the old, double ones in two.
However, their reality is not as bright as some may think, because, at the end of this week, Italy is reporting the largest increase in new cases, since May.
The surge in new infections in Italy is quite alarming for entire Europe, as that’s where the coronavirus first appeared on the continent.
The spike means that every surrounding country will be a target of a new increase, which can be devastating for the entire world.
Whether the decision for school reopening will still be valid by the end of this month, it’s still uncertain to say.
However, the medical authorities are constantly suggesting strict protective measures and protocols, especially in areas where there are most registered positive cases.
The total number of infected people in Italy is 251,000, while over 35,000 have lost their lives.
