Of all tests performed, 20% (25,018 tests) were associated with the screening of educational establishments, while 80% (97,590 tests) were conducted in the rest of the population. Of the positive cases of Covid-19, 8% (1,375 infected) were associated with the screening of educational establishments, while 92% (15,582 infected) were found in the rest of the population.
