Primary school no skills wearing masks, so their protection from coronavirus schools need to use other methods, such as air disinfection, disinfection and cancellation of mass events, said honored doctor of Russia, doctor of medical Sciences, the first Deputy Chairman of the Duma Committee on education and science Gennady Onishchenko. On Friday, reports RIA “Novosti”.

“For children wearing masks — the issue is quite complicated, because the skills of wearing them, especially the kids in grade school, no. Barely adults is to get vaccinated starting, so here we must understand that the children we will use other methods: this separation, and the abolition of the Cabinet of training, when every week the children go from one office to another,” — said Onishchenko.

Earlier, first Deputy Chairman of state Duma Committee on natural resources, property and land relations Vasily Vlasov proposed that from 1 September free of charge to provide students with means of individual protection. Corresponding letter he sent to the head of the Ministry of health of Michael Murashko.

Onishchenko has noticed that Vlasov sent a letter “wrong address”, as students with masks is not the function of the Ministry of health, in addition, “the ant has no such money.” The MP believes, the primary school pupils of the mask is not likely to be needed, and students of middle and high school masks should be provided by the parents, if the regional authorities will not find the money for it.

The MP believes that a major city will find such opportunities. He also stressed that vaccination of students against the flu is free.

Students and the older generation are at risk of influenza, and the students do not fall in the official risk groups who should be vaccinated, said Onishchenko, adding that “in a very harsh manner would recommend to vaccinate” and students.

“Even if it were not this notorious coronavirus, anyway we started to demand the wearing of masks (in universities. — Approx. ed.) but since the end of September, when the rise in the incidence of influenza and acute respiratory infections. Therefore, all relevant regulations, recommendations will be given depending on situation and so on,” — said the Deputy.

According to him, the leadership of the universities can take on providing students with masks extrabudgetary funds.

“Although I just say, none of the laws there is no obligation and article like this, there is no funding to provide students (with masks. — Approx. ed.)… but nonetheless to seek out this opportunity need to be,” concluded Gennady Onishchenko.
