Nicolás Trotta said that the decision to suspend classes was made on the recommendation of the expert committee and after a videoconference with the WHO.
The Minister of Education, Nicolás Trotta, said this Monday that the Government is prioritizing health and noted that there is no scheduled date for the return of classes.
“Today we prioritize health and part of that is accompanying children in this social moment,” Trotta emphasized in statements to Radio Rivadavia.
Argentina was one of the countries that decided to suspend classes the fastest: “In Europe they decided 40 days after the first cases.”
“The decision to suspend classes was made on the recommendation of the expert committee and after a videoconference with the World Health Organization (WHO),” Trotta explained.
“Many of the decisions that are made today in Argentina have to do with learning about the painful things that happen in Europe, especially because of what happens in countries as close to us as Spain and Italy are,” he added.
The Minister of Education clarified that there is still no scheduled date for the return of classes and “the same is happening in Europe.”
“When we know when classes return, we will talk with the provinces and union organizations how we continue,” he said.
