Teenager with covid-19 works in camp and contaminates 260 in the USA

260 people received a positive diagnosis for covid-19 after spending about a week at a summer camp in Georgia, United States.

According to a survey released today by the country’s Disease Control Center (CDC), it all started on June 23, when a teenager who worked as a camp counselor returned home after showing symptoms of the new coronavirus.

One day, he was diagnosed and the board began sending other young people home. But it was too late: in the following weeks, 76% of camp goers and employees were also diagnosed with the disease.

For the CDC, this is an example of how quickly young people can spread the virus. Although children and adolescents are not at risk, they can play an important role in the transmission of covid-19, contrary to what was believed in the beginning of the pandemic.

The camp did not follow all prevention recommendations: the use of masks was mandatory for employees, but not for visitors.

“Additionally, camp guests participated in a series of indoor and outdoor activities that included singing and cheering, which may have contributed to the broadcast,” says the CDC.
