The city of Bonn has recorded the second confirmed case of coronavirus disease. Late Friday afternoon (March 6), the health department was informed of a positive test result in a 13-year-old boy attending the Bonn International School.
The school management had informed the parents and teachers directly and closed the school until 23 March. The city will formally quarantine the approximately 40 to 50 students and teachers who had direct contact with the boy at home. On Saturday morning, the public health department was still in the process of calling the parents who had not yet been reached. For children who show symptoms, the fire brigade will take swabs.
The city must first report positive corona cases to the Landeszentrum Gesundheit Nordrhein-Westfalen before it can pass on the information to the public. This may cause delays in the flow of information.
