“Schools in the Countryside” Suspended Because of Dengue Fever / CID
Posted on November 16, 2013

Santa Clara, Cuba November 13, 2013. Officers of the Ministry of
Education (MINED), Central Region, at a government meeting on Monday
the 11th, suspended the Schools in the Countryside program for November
and December, because of the complicated epidemiological situation in
the province.

Guilfredo Martin Betancourt, a MINED official, said the province is
experiencing cases of cholera and dengue fever, without giving specifics
with regards to numbers, given the environmental and social indiscipline
problems.

Captain Robert Rodriguez said, during a meeting with families of the
students at the school, that since the beginning of the summer rains and
despite the efforts of workers in the provincial health system, foci of
the vector (mosquitoes) have accumulated in the capital city and other
municipalities.

Yudmila de la Caridad Vázquez, a teacher of the institution, told this
publication that the curriculum of the Cuban school is planned such that
students from eighth grade upward, spend 30 days of work in the fields,
thereby strengthening the Marti principle of Work Study, but that this
time the suspension is the right thing to do, because they can not
endanger the health of students.
