Health is considering eliminating quarantines for close contacts, even if they are not vaccinated

The Ministry of Health and the autonomous communities will propose in the Public Health Commission tomorrow the elimination of quarantines of all close contacts of positives for Covid-19, including those not vaccinated, as confirmed by sources from the Ministry.

These quarantines have already been eliminated for vaccinated people a few months ago, although Health recommended limiting their activities outside the home in the 10 days after the last contact with a confirmed case, and insisted on the "constant" use of the mask.

Thus, with 91.1 percent of the Spanish population over 12 years of age vaccinated, it is expected that this measure will benefit, above all, minors between the ages of 5 and 11, some 3.3 million throughout Spain, with still low vaccination rates.

For this population group, the immunization process began only two months ago, on December 15 and, precisely for this reason, and because the interval between the first and second doses is eight weeks, only 547,702 children have the complete guideline (16.7% of those under 12 years of age).

As for the first dose, according to the latest vaccination report, a total of 1,878,352 children already have it (57.1% of this population group).
