Dear Friend,
 

As we hear questions about reopening schools, we should look at the number of Covid-19 fatalities to determine the level of danger to our children.

In Texas, we’ve verified that at least 1,691 kids under the age 19 contracted Covid-19, but not one child has died. The flu, on the other hand, has killed eight children this year



Furthermore, when considering the health of our teachers, school employees, and administrators, we are hearing that children may be the least contagious individuals with this virus.
You can watch the video below from Dr. Kelly Victory that explains this point in her thoughtful overview of the virus.

“School Children Don’t Spread Coronavirus, French Study Shows”

By Marthe Fourcade

Excerpts from this article:

School kids don’t appear to transmit the new coronavirus to peers or teachers, a French study found, weighing in on the crucial topic of children’s role in propagating Covid-19.

Scientists at Institut Pasteur studied 1,340 people in Crepy-en-Valois, a town northeast of Paris that suffered an outbreak in February and March, including 510 students from six primary schools. They found three probable cases among kids that didn’t lead to more infections among other pupils or teachers.

The study confirms that children appear to show fewer telltale symptoms than adults and be less contagious, providing a justification for school reopenings in countries from Denmark to Switzerland. The researchers found that 61% of the parents of infected kids had the coronavirus, compared with about 7% of parents of healthy ones, suggesting it was the parents who had infected their offspring rather than the other way around…
