The biggest problem with reopening schools safely is we don’t actually know what’s safe
“The reason so little is known really comes down to the short time span scientists have had to research COVID-19 and how very difficult it is to study kids, in particular. On top of that, certain data points have offered conflicting conclusions. For instance, countries such as Austria, Denmark, and Germany have reopened schools relatively successfully while others, such as Israel, Japan, and South Korea, opened their schools only to shutter them again following spikes in new infections.”
“In another instance, an early contact tracing study in China suggested that kids under 10 years old were just as likely to get infected with COVID-19 as adults but much less likely to show symptoms. But subsequent to that, other studies have suggested kids contract the virus less frequently than adults.” Daily Kos reports.
