    It hard to imagine that after village idiot Dr. Oz said only 2 to 3 % of kids would die if schools reopened now why we’re not reopening the schools. I mean to Trump, 2 to 3% is a rounding error. Save the economy! (not!) Yes, I think we can call in the dogs on this school year. Sad, but necessary.

      > Kevin – That quote was spread wildly out of context. The study states that returning to school will increase the OVERALL mortality by 2%. That means if the current projection of 60,000 deaths holds (the projections have been dramatically reduced several times) returning to school would add 1200 deaths to the total. NOT kids, but total deaths would increase from 60,000 to 61,200. One key feature of life is risk/benefit analysis. How much harm is being done by keeping students home? Special needs, social, emotional, nutrition?
