Four young children have been infected with coronavirus at a nursery school after their teacher became unwell with coronavirus.

The children and teacher attend the nursery school in North Rhine-Westphalia in the district of Heinsberg, which is situated near the border with the Netherlands.

There are almost 40 confirmed cases of coronavirus in Heinsberg district and almost 185 school children have been placed in quarantine in nearby Bonn.

Head of Infectious Diseases and Tropical Medicine at the University Medical Center Hamburg Marylyn Addo said: “Until a few weeks ago, we only had a few isolated cases that could be contained relatively quickly.

“In this respect, this is a more dynamic event that goes beyond individual cases.”

She added, “We don’t know where we will be in two months.”
