While I do understand the problem many parents are facing when they have to go to work and their children/child has to stay at home, the reopening of schools is not the answer.
The number of people falling sick every day, the death rate, and the inability of the researchers to come up with an effective cure or a preventive vaccine should put an end to this debate.
It is not humane or kind or even sensible to send millions of children to school where they can and will be exposed to this virus and would in turn bring it home to their families.
The argument that very few kids fall sick due to this disease, is a false one. Even if children don’t fall seriously ill with Covid-19, they can carry the infection and spread it to each other, their teacher, and families.
Reopening the schools will set in motion a tsunami of infections and the fallout would be very severe.
I am sharing Lauren’s post here. She explains it much better than I could.
