Children less likely to spread COVID-19, school openings seem low-risk

New data shows that even in communities with increases in infection numbers, outbreaks in schools are uncommon. Susceptibility to and transmission of COVID increases with age. The correlation is seen globally. Still, teens are as likely to transmit as adults. In the US, infection rates in ages 12-17 are twice that of ages 5-11. It is unclear why young children are less likely to spread the virus.

The kids need to be back in school. I have 4 kids and have seen the whole range. Online, hybrid, in school. In school is where they learn the best and their emotional/mental health has gotten back to normal. The district has only had 1 case where a kid may have had covid and it was taken care of quickly. Only 4 kids had to quarntine from it. Time to rip the bandaid off and get them back to normal. They are being done such a disservice with the online learning...it's just not up to the same quality.

I’m in Georgia, we made national news when Paulding County schools opened in August... no masks. Guess what.. everyone is fine and they are still up and running! Shortly after, the liberal media did a big news story about a seven-year-old child in that county that died from Covid, but he actually drowned in a bathtub!!!

It never was. The parents took them to Walmarts this whole time with far more foot traffic and humans still touching everything in every aisle as usual. Fauxvid19 is one hell of a stage play though.

As a teacher I can confirm that we have had students in the classroom for months and all we have had is a handful of cases.

Meanwhile in MN districts are going back to remote after passing the infection threshold.

"large outbreaks linked to schools and childcare centers were also rare" bahhahahaha with most schools closed, the amount of schools spreading COVID is tiny, let's open up?! Garbage math.

We've always known this. The vulnerable group is 78 or something and even then you are likely to survive. Yet there are still schools closed. It's just mass hysteria. We should have been shuting down the economy and wearing masks for decades due to the flu.

Ah what a lovely virus, it was told it's not allowed on campus and it just stays away.

Why would a virus engineered to kill off the old and infirm affect children?
