Ugh this is exactly what I’ve been fearing as we near closer to schools reopening…
The Academy of Pediatrics (APA) Says 97,000 Children Have Tested Positive For COVID-19 in 2 weeks and that is concerning.
According to a report published by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Children’s Hospital Association, a 40% increase in child coronavirus cases in the states we found during the last two weeks.
Along with the positive cases, at least 86 children have died as a result of the disease since May, according to the new report.
The report states that from 7/16/20 – 7/30/20 a total of 97,078 new child cases were reported.
Could this be a result of some schools, daycare and other child facilities are starting to reopen? I certainly think so.
There have been many reports of schools reopening and having to close again due to increase of cases and students testing positive for the Coronavirus.
I am just not sure how anyone can possibly think heading back to school right now is the answer.
I get kids need an education but it doesn’t need to be right now. Not while we continue to see an increase in positive cases.
As schools being to open, I fear we will begin seeing more and more positive cases along with deaths. Deaths in children and the family members and friends they infect.
Personally, I think we should just call off this school year and start back next year when we have a better handle on things but ya know, I am not an expert.
So, what do you think? Is this cause of concern?
