Tahiti, February 4, 2021 – In a statement released on Thursday, the Directorate General of Education and Teaching (DGEE) indicated that the person with tuberculosis is in consultation with students and staff of Heri Nursery Schools and Farahi and Waiha Elementary School. A screening campaign was conducted for all students and school staff.

The Directorate General of Education and Teaching (DGEE) said in a statement on Thursday that a man with tuberculosis had contacted students and staff of three public schools in Fay. Harry and Farahi Nursery Schools and Waiha Primary School in Faya are of concern. Parents and school staff have already been informed.

The sick person is cared for and treated appropriately and is no longer infected, prescribes DGEE.

The doctor and nurse responsible for the fight against tuberculosis at the Health Watch Office (BVS) conducted the tests in coordination with the Consultation Center, which specializes in hygiene and school health (CCSHS), and all DGE students.
