    Low registration and transferrals out of European School Mamer

    The rate of registration of new children to European school Lux II is so low that the school now wants to radically change the rules of registration, ‘forcing parents with kids in the DE, FR and EN sections to send their kids to Lux II, except in certain circumstances.’

    By today 11 cases of measles were reported to the school administration. Unfortunately they still don’t understand that this information should be immediately communicated to the parents. Instead they are sending out useless communication with no substance like the one from Maria KALFOPOULOU on Friday.

    The measles virus is one of the most infectious diseases known to man. A person with measles can cough in a room and leave, and hours later, if you’re unvaccinated, you could catch the virus from the droplets in the air the infected person left behind.

    According to statistics in an unvaccinated population, one person with measles can infect 12 to 18 others.

    Disease typically strikes children. After an incubation period of 10 to 12 days, measles comes on as a fever, cough, stuffy nose, and bloodshot and watery eyes. Loss of appetite and malaise are common too. Several days after these initial symptoms, an uncomfortable spotty rash begins to spread all over the body, starting on the face and neck and moving downward. The rash usually lasts for three to five days and then fades away.

    In uncomplicated cases, people who get measles start to recover as soon as the rash appears and feel back to normal in about two to three weeks.

    But up to 40 percent of patients have complications from the virus. These usually occur in the very young (children under 5), in adults over 20, and in anybody else who is immuno compromised. Children under 5 have the highest probability of death.

    Based on Health Department in Luxembourg around 20 cases of measles are expected in our school.

    Stay safe.
