The figures provided this Friday by the rectorate of the Rennes academy are skyrocketing: 108 classes closed in Brittany, twice as many as seven days previously. “A significant increase,” notes the institution. There are at least five schools with closed doors: in Lamballe-Armor, Saint-Brieuc, Lignol, Vannes, Plouvara. And even a college: the Sainte-Thérèse establishment in Rennes . Covid-19 is spreading in the region, and schools are not sealed off. In the space of a week, the number of students diagnosed positive increased by 50%, that of staff members tripled. Reported to 100,000 people, there are 130 schoolchildren affected. And 320 staff, twice the incidence rate in the region.
