The number of Covid-19 contaminations explodes among the children: they were 15,484 infected on March 19, against 9,221 the previous week, an increase partly attributable to the increase in saliva tests, which reached 250,000 tests carried out on Friday evening.

The cases of Covid-19 are also progressing among the staff, where there are 1,809 cases as of March 19, against 1,106 ten days ago.
