i live in central europe and every neighboring country has confirmed cases of the corona virus spread by ppl who returned from guess what.. italy 👏👏👏 my friend was also in northern italy but this inconsiderate f****r still comes to school... im EXTREMELY worried abt this since i have an older dad at home.
people in my country are not taking this seriously.
should i try convince my teachers and dad to let me stay at home for two weeks or rather encourage my school staff to make everyone returning from italy stay at home??

Relax. If he's been given a yes to come to school I'm sure he's fine, and so will you be.

Obviously stay vigilant and contact the relevant emergent services if you notice any symptoms.

Stay safe

i live in england and the advice here is that you shouldn’t come into school if you’ve got flu-like symptoms. idk, you might have different regulations in your country but try not to worry unless your friend appears ill x

You’re overreacting. Of course he can still go to school if he’s not showing flu-like symptoms. You’re just being unreasonable and paranoid about the virus.

This whole thing has been blown out of proportion by the media. More people die from winter flu. Even if you get it you are unlikely to be seriously ill. Stop stressing

Hardly. You're more likely to catch some common or garden lurgy from schools kids anyway.
One couldnt possibly say, i dont follow developments in schools.

Three girls at my school (2 twins and their friend) went to Italy over the holidays and came back on Monday and today they were taken out of the mock exam and sent home for 2 weeks as a parent had rang in and reported their concerns.

Considering the fact that some can go 14 days without showing any signs, I would be slightly concerned. It sounds unlikely that your friend has it but your school is still being incredibly irresponsible. Yes, the death rate is low but it is INCREDIBLY contagious and can seriously harm a country's economy- just look at the FTSE 100. And, news flash, 1% of the population of the UK would mean at least 600,000 deaths (although it's unlikely 100% of the population would be infected) so I don't really think it's something to dismiss. If it was only as dangerous as the yearly flu, then why are countries investing billions of dollars in preventing the spread? They don't do that with the flu.
