    China is a pretty bad example.

    That is specious reasoning. Children went to school throughout much more dangerous diseases that were fatal to children, e.g. polio, diphtheria, and many others. This disease in not a threat to children.

    I reached a thousand posts so I'm just a mere All-Star, nowhere near the heft of an MVP or Diety. It'll be years before I'm as full of crap as a King.

    I had a long visit with a doctor who works in a hospital yesterday. He has seen people of all ages, conditions and ethnicities get the virus. He spoke of one guy in his 30s in perfect health who spiralled and was gone in two weeks. He expects more quarantines in the fall and winter because there is still so much they don't know about Covid-19... and he's not a member of the media or affiliated with a political party.
    Just stating my opinion of what SHOULD have been done in Feb and March. When Jacko started the original Covid thread in late Feb I was saying the same thing: close all borders except for returning citizens, everyone stays in their home unless its an emergency or if you are an essential worker for three weeks-and we would have long been over this. Trump clearly dropped the ball and continues to so so. That said, I am very optimistic that we will have a functional vaccine this fall for those at the highest risk and for general use in early 2021. The vaccine may not totally eliminate the infection from individuals-we might still get sick from the virus, but hopefully the moderate to severe cases will greatly diminish. That works for me until we have an even better vaccine.

    That is factually incorrect. Children too are dying from this, though not at as great a rate.

    It was a 2-3% increase in the rate of total population deaths, not student deaths.

    Dr. Oz was referencing the overall death rate, not the death rate in children which is 0.

    Factually incorrect, but don't let that stop you: https://www.nbcnewyork.com/investiga...lness/2411571/

    There is no way that an enforced lockdown when there were less than 100 cases and only one confirmed death nationwide would have been politically feasible in February. As it was opposition had a hissy fit when he did what he did in late January and early Feb. Despite what Trump says the President does not have the authority under the Public Health Act to close the country and put everyone on shutdown. He can limit interstate travel. The authority to quarantine within a state is solely a governors prerogative under my reading of the Act.

    Quite frankly I happen to agree with both Gov Newsom and Cuomo who have said the federal response has been outstanding. The hypercriticism of the federal response is just TDS and nothing more.
