In this regard, he reported that 66% of basic education personnel, 66.7% of technical higher education and 69% of university higher education personnel have already received the two doses of the vaccine.

Cadillo said that for the return to the classroom a set of protocols has been established that is working worldwide and that the possible infections that may exist in an educational institution are part of the new normality that must be faced in the context of the pandemic. .
"There is a set of studies worldwide that indicate that if we know how to respect the protocols, schools are safe spaces," he said after highlighting that in the Loreto region 100,000 students are already receiving blended classes.
