  • Who Said That Children Were Immune to COVID-19?

    Another mistake from the White House...

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/97...ys/ar-BB17J8T7

    Nearly 100,000 children tested positive for the coronavirus in the last two weeks of July, a new report from the American Academy of Pediatrics finds. Just over 97,000 children tested positive for the coronavirus from July 16 to July 30, according to the association.
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
    Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
    To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

    How many have died and how does that compare to the numbers that normally die from flu?

      Very few of them will die but they may very well infect about 200,000 others of which thousands may will die...

        Children get it less, suffer less, spread it less. What every reputable research this side of the Atlantic shows.

          Some idiot who slept through Biology.

          Kids have a certain resilience to disease compared to adults, true enough, but immunity is something very different

            Who said anyone has any idea :-) There is an expert for whatever position you want to take and many like Fauci have a habit of changing their minds.

              Why didn't I know that the OP headline would be a TDS thread, I guess I am getting slow with age.

                And yet children are getting sick from the pandemic, being admitted to hospital in the ICU, and dying from it.

                  More children have died in the UK from delays to treatment due to lock down, 9 than have died due to Covid 6. It is more likely that a child will be hit by a car walking down the street than die of Covid. The risk from Covid for a child is minuscule. The damage caused be ceasing their education is immense.

                    Well it's the middle of the summer holidays - education for children 'ceases' every year this time, schools were open at the end of June, and unless something unexpected happens, they will be open again come September

                      Ours will open, unless Boris chickens out again and gives in the the unions, in September as well. It seems that the left in the US want to keep schools closed indefinitely. The closing or opening of schools is a political decision not a medical one.

                          Given the many complaints on this forum about the terrible quality of education the covid-induced closure of schools is truly God-sent.

                            Given the universality of the subject, would be an idea to have a Covid sub forum where all Covid matters can be discussed.

                              Not really - given the locality of the spread of the disease, and the variation in methods of dealing with it, it may even be a good idea to be more specific in each post/thread.

                              Here the discussion about elementary schools is pretty much settled, they will open in September, albeit with certain precautions taken.

                              In other places it seems a consensus needs still to be found.
