    There are over 9 (nine) million school kids in California. Not a single one of them died because of the Covid-19.

    Yet for reasons they refuse to explain, the San Diego and Los Angeles Unified School Districts announced they will not reopen schools for the Fall semester.

    These are the official numbers:

    They Demshevik Party controlled school districts refuse to re-open schools because for every school child staying at home it means at least one parent or grand parent will have postpone returning to work and will be forced to stay home to supervise and home school that child.

    More parents and grand parents not going back to work, means the economic rebound will be delayed.

    The economic rebound being delayed or slowed down, means Trump will have less chances to be re-elected.

    This is the 2020 Demshevik Party election strategy in a nutshell: keep as many people as possible out of work, lengthen the economic suck, let them dry up their savings, fall behind with the rent or mortgage payments and put them into bankruptcy, blame Trump for everything, and they're going to vote for Biden and his comrades.

    Sad thing is if you're an adult and you've had allergies and diarrhea for days you most likely have Covid

    It's called the "great reset", they don't mention it much here in America but overseas, the globalists are all cheering on this "great reset". Don't look for things to go back to normal.

    This is the weirdest presidential campaign ever.

    Killer viruses
    Authoritarian Lockdowns
    Toilet Paper shortages
    Murderous mobs in the streets
    Everything on fire

    Whatever happened to "I like Ike" buttons?

    I was having a conversation with my wife about this very issue. I asked her (more of a rhetorical question, because we agree 100% on this and most politics), what is the main purpose of school, to educate children or to provide jobs and pensions for teachers? The answer is obvious, of course, to teach children. So, if the children are not at risk, but the older or sick teachers are, then the answer is that we send the kids back to school and do what we can to keep the older teachers safe.

    That could mean putting them in a position where they don't interact face to face with children or with others who can get them sick (maybe an admin position or a remote learning option that the kids can do from school, but only if that is an option. One might say that's unfair to them, but it's the responsibility of the school district and administrators to do what they can do to keep teachers safe. If kids are not at risk, and not going to school has all of the downsides that we are learning about, then it's imperative that we get them back in school. If someone can't or is unwilling to do the job, then find someone else who can.

    There are studies out there that adults don't seem to be getting Covid from children, and vice versa. But, the bottom line is that the school system is for kids, and we have to do the right thing. Politics will likely get in the way.

    There are studies already done that show (unlike previously thought) people who have been tested Covid-19 positive but are asymptomatic cannot transmit the virus. This is why adults don't get infected by children. It's not because of the age of the children, but because children don't manifest symptoms even if they carry the virus.

    I think we can all agree that every statistic there is shows that COVVID 19 is considerably less dangerous than the seasonal flu for anybody under 25. I haven't seen that disputed since the beginning.

    Where are they saying asymptomatic people can't transmit the virus? Patient Zero in the state of KY was asymptomatic and is responsible for the first 6 cases. It was only luck that they ever figured out it was him.

    "The asymptomatic group had a significantly longer duration of viral shedding than the symptomatic group (log-rank P = 0.028)."

    How can you know for certain that Patient Zero was responsible for 6 transmissions? That seems to be an almost impossible figure to ascertain. With all the interstate travel the occurs, you’d have to know the movements and daily contacts of all 6 people. Even then there’s no certain way to know where and whom gave them COVID.

    They do know. All were traced back to a choir group in which nobody had left the area except 1 person. That person had been in California some kind of bodybuilding convention in the previous week or two. He never had symptoms. He tested positive and later donated antibodies.

    Ask the Israeli's how opening the schools worked for them.

    Teachers and staff aren't 0-17 years old. Neither are parents (most of them anyway).

    Seems Germany, Ireland, Iceland and the Netherlands are finding different results.

    Perhaps there were other spreaders in Israel?

    Its great that there are no deaths in that age group, but there are quite a few cases in the data listed.

    Assuming the virus is as contagious as we are being told then each one of these kids has the opportunity to infect everyone they are in contact with. I don't know if this is the reasoning they used for closing the schools, just saying its a possibility instead of a conspiracy theory.

    This is the study I'm referring to, not sure if that supports or refutes your quote, but interesting I thought.

    That was the point of the link I posted, right about this one. There could be other studies, but it doesn't appear kids are really getting it from adults or transferring it to adults, at least in measurable numbers.

    Thank you for that. Good to know and hopefully this guidance is being relayed to the people in power making decisions.

    ND has no child deaths but multiple hospitalizations for under 18 due to COVID. Children can catch it, Children can spread it and in very rare cases they can die from it. Anyone who says otherwise is both a liar and a fool.

    Yes, and you can get struck dead by lightning too. Ban going outside permanently.

    And stairs, and bath tubs, and DEFINITELY cars and sharp objects. Not to mention sugars and fatty foods. Most foods really, and couches. And TVs, and phones. Those things lead to being overweight and diabetes.

    Also other kids and adults hands and feet.

    We really all should live in a nice safe enclosed bubble. Though, can't figure how to exercise with no chance of death ...

    Ahem...got some fresh news for you, comrade:

    German study finds no evidence coronavirus spreads in schools
    Scientists say children may act as a "brake" on the spread of the virus
    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/20...inds-no-evidence-coronavirus-spreads-schools/

    Those darn Nazi scientists, first they built V1 and V2 flying bombs, now they want to kill people with covid-19
