ALMERIA province’s Education authorities reported 590 cases of pupils kept home from school for fear of Covid­­-19.

Primary school pupils accounted for 409 of the children with the remainder in the 12 to 16-year-old age group.

Announcing the survey last October Antonio Jimenez, the Junta’s Education and Sports delegate to Almeria, explained that his department wanted to determine whether absentees had over-protective parents or came from at-risk families.
