The headmaster of an elementary school in Karangasem tested positive with Covid-19 after receiving the vaccine booster.
The Head of Karangasem Educational Youth and Sports, I Wayan Sutrisna, confirmed that the headmaster of a public elementary school in Karangasem was confirmed positive with Covid-19, two days after receiving the vaccine booster.
“He tested positive with Covid-19 on Saturday (29/1). He received the vaccine booster on Thursday (27/1),” Sutrisna said.
The doctor conducted a swab test on the headmaster on Friday, one day after he started feeling unwell. However, Sutrisna believes that the headmaster had already contracted Covid-19 before the vaccination.
“We suspect that he had already contracted the virus prior to the vaccination,” Sutrisna added.
The Head of Karangasem Health Agency, Dr. I Gusti Bagus Putra Pertama, stated that the incubation period of the virus is 2 to 14 days, making it possible for the headmaster to have been exposed before he received the booster.
They will begin tracing everyone who had contact with the headmaster, such as teachers and students of the elementary school.
